Facebook, Official-looking Renders of Ray-Ban Smart Glasses are online before launch

Facebook and Ray-Ban may unveil their smart glasses on Thursday, September 9th. A new leak shows official-looking renderings that offer a glimpse into the supposed designs of the upcoming wearable. Facebook and Ray-Ban smart glasses can come in three different designs. The renderings show a camera sensor on each front corner of the smart glasses with a button on the right temple. Leaks only show the design and contents of the box. No additional information has emerged about the specifications of the smart glasses.

Well-known insider Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted some official-looking versions of Ray-Ban and Facebook’s upcoming smart glasses to Twitter. The renderings show the smart glasses in three different designs – Meteor, Round and Wayfarer. Each drawing is also shown with its box and contents inside. The wearable will come with a charging cord, a holster, a pouch, along with safety and warranty and reference guide booklets.

The renderers for the smart glasses are shown in four colors – Black, Blue, Brown and Green. Some of the smart glasses are shown with “Ray-Ban P” engraved on the right lens, which means they can also come with polarized lenses. As mentioned, there are two camera sensors on each wearable (one on each front corner). However, sensor specifications are not yet known. There’s also a button on the right temple, speculated to be the shutter button.

The renderers show that the smart glasses could have their battery and other connected technologies placed inside bulky frames, given the inclusion of a charging cable in the case. Smart glasses may still be unveiled today, as a microsite appeared on the Ray-Ban website.

Smart glasses were also provoked by Facebook Reality Labs VP Andrew Bosworth. He shared a video recording of his and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s point of view. However, the video doesn’t mention anything about the upcoming smart glasses, nor does it show them.
