Shows 3: Connected glasses Snapchat is entitled to a third version
The new camera takes the place of the LED indicator on the previous models. Like the last ones smartphones high-end like the Huawei P30 Pro, the Galaxy S10 + Note 10+ or the iPhone XS, this camera can shoot scenes in three dimensions through depth detection, with the ability to add 3D filters. Snapchat offers its own filters but allows third party developers to expand the catalog.
The new glasses also offer recording VR / AR compatible content that it is possible to share easily on Snapchat, but also on other social networks like Twitter, Instagram and YouTube (VR). To view them, you need a virtual reality headset like the Google Cardboard, or any other more advanced headset range. As you can see, the 3 shows do not have a built-in screen and they still depend on a smartphone to which they connect in Bluetooth or Wi-Fi not only to transfer the recorded contents, but also to view them.
These connected glasses will be available in November at the price of … 370 euros. Snapchat is clearly not targeting the general public, the opposite would have surprised us. These glasses will be launched in limited edition and the company recognizes willingly to address a niche audience, but it is careful to specify the number of copies it intends to market.
