When Google Glass was announced, the exact specifications of the device were not made known to the public.  We were left to wonder what the hardware specs of Google Glass would be when the final product is released.  Very recently, however, Google updated the Google Glass website to reveal the main specs of the device.

Google Glass is a wearable device similar to your ordinary eye glasses but with a display in front and the capability to take photos, shoot videos, give directions, send messages, translate your voice into another language and some other nifty features that make it the ultimate mobile companion next to the smartphone.  It’s cool, alright, but it’s too expensive for now.

Google Glass has a 640 x 360 resolution display, with the exact dimensions unspecified.  It doesn’t sound impressive but it’s just in front of the eye so it should be a very high resolution display.  According to Google, the display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.  The camera on the Google Glass is capable of taking 5 megapixel photos and 720p videos.  Remember that picture quality is not in the megapixel count but in the sensor quality, so the 5-megapixel camera could still be capable of shooting high quality photos.


For connectivity features, Google Glass has Wi-Fi  802.11b/g and Bluetooth.  For internal storage, Google Glass has a total of 16GB flash storage, with only 12GB available to the user, although the device is synced with Google cloud storage.  Battery is not specified, although Google says the device will last one full day of typical use.  Google admits that features like Hangouts and video recording are more battery intensive and will therefore use up battery faster.

Google Glass charges though a micro USB slot and is compatible with any Bluetooth-capable phone.  The MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. The MyGlass app enables features like GPS and SMS messaging.
