Google released their first wearable years ago now with the consumer-focused Google Glass not doing too well in the market, with Google pivoting to the enterprise market with Google Glass Enterprise Edition and now we're seeing the markings of new Google Glass Enterprise headset.

The new Google Glass Enterprise Edition has popped up over at 9to5Google, with the second-gen wearable having a few different, and significant changes. First off, we have fast-charging through a new USB-C port, as well as a bunch of internal changes with a newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, and 3GB of RAM joining the second-gen Glass Enterprise Edition wearable. Inside, we also have Bluetooth 5.0, LTE, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.

The camera has also been upgraded in a big way, moving from an 8-megapixel sensor to a purported 32-megapixel sensor that would see 4K 30FPS and 1080p 60FPS video recording abilities.

We don't know when, or if the new Google Glass Enterprise Edition will launch.
