Powered by Snapdragon XR1 processor, Google Glass Enterprise Edition v2 has launched in May 2019, but at the time you had to contact Google Glass sales team or distributors to source one or more samples for your application, and there was no easy way to purchase the glasses online.
But things have changed as the company realized they should make it easier for developers to build apps for the platform, and Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 can now be purchased for around $1,060 from resellers such as Mobile Advance or SHI.
At that price, it does not come with the “Titanium band” that appears required to make sure the glasses stay in place. So the price goes up to $1,195 (or $136 extra) if you want the Glass Enterprise Edition 2 Developer Kit with both the glass pod and the titanium band.
This is not meant as a consumer device and only targets developers or businesses who are interesting in developing apps running on Android 8.0 operating system found in the device. To help with the task, Google also released new open-source applications and code samples that include sample layouts and UI components.
