SNAPCHAT SPECTACLES- #NEW SEASON STYLE
September 6, 20180
The original Spectacles from Snapchat, though designed more or less like traditional sunglasses, weren’t for everyone. The funky frame was…well, ugly, and the camera in one corner and LED flash in the other were visible from an aeroplane. The originals launched in 2016, and the company redesigned in April 2018 (technically called Spectacles 2), making them smaller and lighter, but the design remained mostly the same.
On Wednesday, Snap launched, Spectacles in two new styles, and these will likely appeal to anyone who wanted to try this gadget but pined for a more traditional look.
The new styles, dubbed Nico and Veronica, still aren’t your classic Wayfarers, but they definitely don’t scream their purpose from the rooftops like the originals. This is especially true for Veronica, whose lenses have a gradient that gets darker towards the top, which makes the camera and the LED flash far less noticeable.
