Soon a new brand will appear in the hardware sector! And what company are we talking about? Well, it’s Facebook, as it was recently confirmed that Mark Zuckerberg will team up with Ray-Ban and launch smart glasses.
This is what Zuckerberg confirmed on the company’s second-quarter 2021 earnings call. Specifically, the Facebook CEO said:
“Looking into the future, the next product we will launch will be our first EssilorLuxottica smart glasses in collaboration with Ray-Ban.”
In case you didn’t know, there have been rumors since 2019 about the alliance between Facebook and Ray-Ban. Through Zuckerberg’s statements, it can be said that the two companies’ association is more than certain.
Now, what functions will the new Facebook glasses offer? The Facebook CEO hasn’t talked much about this topic. Some rumors suggest that the glasses will resemble Snapchat’s Spectacles V2. But at the moment, the specifications of the device are not entirely clear.
Of course, the glasses will have a luxurious design considering that Ray-Ban is in the project. And this is great, because if Facebook wants to install it with these glasses, the best thing is for the company to combine a high-quality look with interesting functionality in the device.
Everything seems to indicate that Mark Zuckerberg will expand his business outside of social networks sooner or later. There are also rumors about the Facebook smartwatch.
