Details are currently kept very close to the company's chest, but Snap is reportedly hard at work on a new pair of Spectacles that will be “quite different” than what's on the market right now, according to sources speaking with TechCrunch.
The big change rumored for the next-gen Spectacles is the addition of augmented reality features.

Snap has a clear interest in AR, as evidenced by its constant updates to the Snapchat app that add face- and environment-altering filters, to its newly unveiled World Lenses feature for plant moving, augmented elements onto photos and videos.
However, all that TechCrunch's sources could say at this time is that a new model of Spectacles is in development. As for exactly what these brand-new Specs will actually do or if they'll ever see the light of day, it's best to take the news with a grain of salt until official confirmation arrives.
