Google shows off new version of Google Glass, complete with earbud

Google logoGoogle had previously announced that a hardware revision of Glass was in production and that Google Glass Explorers would be eligible to trade in their existing headsets for the updated version. Now the company is showing off just what the new version of Google Glass will look like.

There really doesn't seem to be much that's new. The pictured design looks identical to the current version of Glass, except for a mono earbud that plugs into the middle of the device. With Googlers frequently offering quotes like “This is the bulkiest version of Glass we’ll ever make” and with Glass being available for over six months, many expected a more drastic design change than what is pictured.

Google shows off new version of Google Glass, complete with earbud

Google says the earbud will be removable, and Glass will keep its current bone conduction speaker. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much difference. Glass Explorers should be a eligible to trade up to the new version sometime in November.
