Google's 'GG1' teases a new version of Glass

Eurobest Festival Of Creativity, Day 1

Before a company announces a device, it has to pass through the FCC's secretive bunker to ensure that it's wireless radios are safe for human contact. Droid Life has trawled through the most recent list of anonymized gadgets to find A4R-GG1, a Google-hewn offering that might, just possibly, be the new version of Google Glass. The clues aren't exactly concrete, but include the fact that the hardware isn't classified as a smartphone, tablet or media device. It's equipped with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth LE and a built-in rechargeable battery, so clearly it's also meant to be taken around with you.

Now, a lot of devices are moving toward e-labels, but the documents reveal that the e-label (pictured) for this device has been formatted to the same sort of aspect ratio as Google Glass' display. Oh, and we could mention the fact that the GG1 in the codename would be a fairly obvious allusion to the wearable's name, but we won't. Of course, it doesn't necessarily mean that we're merely weeks away from seeing Tony Fadell's reimagining of the face-worn computer. If all of this stuff is true, however, then perhaps we can expect to see some testers hanging around the Mountain View area hoping that you're not paying attention to their glasses.
