Like the predecessor, the new Snapchat Spectacles are glasses you wear to capture moments and instantly share them on Snapchat. Unlike the first Spectacles, the new version is available immediately from the website. The device will be available in more locations on May 3. Snap's Spectacles may your answer. And third is that they are now safe to take into the water.

That first version also caused the company to take a almost $40-million writedown in the third quarter due to excess inventory. Moreover, users in the United States are able to order prescription Spectacles if they desire.

A new version of Snap's camera glasses are here - and they have some major improvements over the original model.

And yes, that's the other big change: Spectacles are no longer an elusive piece of tech that sent journalists and Snapchat fans running around the country.

The first time around, the company misjudged interest in a wearable camera, obvious as the idea may sound. Considering its new and refined features $20 more wouldn't be a trouble here. The fact that it is not obvious that the Spectacles are filming their surroundings may lead to a privacy issue, as people who are not comfortable being filmed will be less aware of this with the new design, which has removed the permanent yellow ring in the corner of the frame.

Grab the Xiaomi Mi A1 from RM699 Today
In terms of performance, the Xiaomi Mi 6X is powered by a an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with Adreno 512 GPU. Coming to the updates, a new firmware update carrying the version number as v9.5.10.0 is now available for the Mi A1 .

The first refinement was to create a slimmer design.

The specs look like regular sunglasses, but carry a camera that allows the user to take 10-second clips that can be sent to a user's Snapchat app. 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.

Snap says the new Spectacles have "new and improved" audio recording.

The original Spectacles retailed for $130. This time, they can also take still photos - with a 1642 pixel resolution, 50% higher than the videos shot by the previous version - and they can shoot underwater. The case, which doubles as a charger, is smaller as well. You will be able to take a photo or record video in "shallow water", and owners will be able to use the glasses in the pool or when it's raining.
