Google Releases Specifications on Google Glass

I really had to fight the impulse to title this post "Specs on Specs".

As I had previously stated here, the folks who signed up for the original developer run of Google Glass are now starting to receive their units.  And since the devices are now no longer as tightly controlled as they had been previously, Google has released the device's technical specifications.

They are as follows (copied directly from Google):


  • Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face.
  • Extra nosepads in two sizes.


High resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.


  • Photos - 5 MP
  • Videos - 720p


  • Bone Conduction Transducer


  • Wifi - 802.11b/g
  • Bluetooth


  • 12 GB of usable memory, synced with Google cloud storage. 16 GB Flash total.


One full day of typical use. Some features, like Hangouts and video recording, are more battery intensive.


  • Included Micro USB cable and charger.
While there are thousands of Micro USB chargers out there, Glass is designed and tested with the included charger in mind. Use it and preserve long and prosperous Glass use.


  • Any Bluetooth-capable phone.
  • The MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging.
