We heard rumblings about Snapchat releasing a new version of its Spectacles two weeks ago as an FCC filing revealed a few details. And, since the Spectacles now capture video content in HD, they should deliver better-looking visuals than those produced by the first-generation Spectacles. The fact that the product is referred to as "Model 002" indicates that this is a second generation device.

It's interesting that Snap has decided, once again, to introduce their spectacles.

You can find the new Snap Spectacles on the dedicated shopping website for your region.

At first glance, the Snapchat Spectacles 2 look quite similar to their predecessor, although the design is certainly slimmer than the previous model - making it feel like a real pair of glasses rather than a piece of technology on your face.

The Snapchat founder has brought back Spectacles, the company's camera-fitted shades, despite the $40m they cost the company when sales flopped upon launch. Launching last July at a price of £129.99, the sunglasses came with an embedded video camera that would record ten-second snippets when pressed. When you press and hold the button, you'll be able to snap a photo.

The initial, massive crowds at the bright yellow Spectacles vending machines, where inventory was tight and sold out quickly, convinced the company to order many more units than were actually needed. The battery size has remained the same and Spectacles can be recharged in their case up to four times before the case itself needs to be recharged. They will be available in three colors, Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire.

First, both the current Spectacles and their charging case are smaller and lighter than their first generation counterparts. Snap is also working with the online lens company Lensabl to provide prescription lenses for those of us who are not gifted in the vision department. The first edition had a limit of 10 second video clips, but the new one expands, and lets users capture a second clip, after the initial 10 second one, of up to 30 seconds.
