Washington: Google is set to launch a new model of its Glass headset next year that will be powered by an Intel chip and will offer longer battery life than its predecessor, a report said.
Google Glass has already introduced a few upgrades in order to add compatibility with prescription lenses and to increase the RAM. However, the shift to a new processor indicates a "thorough overhaul" of the entire device, reported The Verge.
Limited battery life and a large price tag have worked against the wearable devices' widespread adoption so far.
The report said that it's unclear which particular Intel chip will power the new Google Glass but added that the likeliest option would be the low-power chip at the heart of Intel 's MICA bracelet.
