Google Glass Explorers have been enjoying their wearable device for a few months now, but we all knew there'd be another unit ready before it hits consumers and that unit is now here.

The Mountain View-based giant has announced a new version of Glass is coming, which will support a new line of sunglasses, feature compatibility with prescription eyewear, and also feature a mono earbud. The current Glass Explorer Edition is based on a 45nm OMAP4430 clocked at up to 1GHz and 1GB of R AM. We don't know if Google has baked in some upgraded hardware into the new Glass units, but I would say so.

 

We should hope that the new SoC is better on battery life, allowing for full-day use which is something that isn't quite there for current Glass units. Current Explorers will receive a one-time swap with the new hardware which will begin next month.
