The new version was teased on Friday.

If you aren't aware of how a new products goes from being a simple idea to actually formulating, you might be in for a surprise. The product doesn't simply surprise everyone as it is unveiled by the company. Instead, it needs to pass through the FCC. The FCC then creates a list that is public record. Now, many of these are of public record, but they, like movies, are often under a different name. That's usually the case with technology as well.

However, the masterminds at Droid Life looked through these list. They were able to look through the list and A4R-GG1, a Google-hewn offering that might, just possibly, be the new version of Google Glass. The clues that they found aren't exactly concrete to someone who doesn't really know what they are looking for, but it does include the fact that the hardware isn't classified as a smartphone, tablet, or media device. That leaves very few options for most things - leading them to realization. They also based this on the fact that it's equipped with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth LE and a built-in rechargeable battery, so clearly it's also meant to be taken around with you.

Now, to be fair, a lot of devices that are being formulated by multiple companies are moving toward e-labels, but the documents reveal that the e-label for this device has been formatted to the same sort of aspect ratio as Google Glass' display. The e-label also has the code "GG1" on it - which could stand for Google Glass.

As a warning, this does not mean that we are close to getting new Google Glass. It could still be years until we see it. However, it is a good sign that at least something is in the pipeline.
