Snap is trying again with Spectacles, for some reason

Analysts See $-0.33 EPS for Snap Inc. (SNAP)

Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP), a Technology sector firm, traded 46.67 Million shares in last trading session and stock shed -6.97% with closing price of $14.54 per share. Before, there was a chunky protrusion that sat near the glasses themselves to store all the necessary internals to make Spectacles work.

The Spectacles' design is also getting a revamp, with an improved build quality, repositioned charging port, and no more permanent yellow ring, though a white circle is still present when recording. Despite a ton of hype, a mass audience has not quite lusted after Snap's Spectacles. It's unclear if these new models are different enough from their predecessors to find a market, especially at the higher cost. Unfortunately, we don't have an IP rating so we can't specify just how waterproof the glasses are, but you shouldn't have to worry if you're near the pool and someone does a cannonball. The glasses also come equipped with two microphones to capture more natural sound. Battery life, however, remains the same.

The original Spectacles retailed for $130.

The second was an increase in the transfer speed between your Snapchat Spectacles 2 and your phone. The company claims transfers to Snapchat will move four times faster now. Recharging is done with the included charging case. 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 pictures show two light-skinned, bearded men, one of whom was wearing glasses and a white and black helmet. Palestine ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Dr Anwar Al Agha said the permission was obtained yesterday afternoon.

The new colors of Spectacles. So without wasting any time let's check out more about it. While the new Spectacles may look virtually identical to the old model at a glance, the new model is actually slimmer, as the bulk of the original model made it somewhat impractical to carry around in place of sunglasses.

Still, it's nice to see Snap being a bit relentless.

Spectacles aren't available on Amazon at this time and it's unclear whether they will be.

With a relatively abysmal first outing, one may question why the company felt the need to update its product and try and reintroduce it on the consumer market.
