Google is working on a newer model of Google Glass that will have Intel chips, according to a latest report from The Wall Street Journal. The company at present uses chips powered by Texas Instruments and plans to replace them next year.
The report said that the Intel plans to promote Glass to hospital networks and manufacturers. It is also a step from Intel to enter the wearable market along with Internet of Things. Intel’s chips are mostly used in personal computers and servers in data centers, but the company has targeted the tablet and wearable markets for new power-efficient versions of its x86-based processors. It competes with rivals such as ARM and Texas Instruments.
Currently, it is not known what kind of processors will Intel supply Google for the Glass. The report did not stated when will the Intel powered Google Glass hit the markets but it is due sometime in 2015.
