These Are Google Glass's CPU and RAM Specs

Illustration for article titled These Are Google Glasss CPU and RAM Specs

Not too long ago, some of Google Glass's specs got out there, but we were missing two critical pieces: CPU and RAM. Now, thanks to some endeavoring hackers who've gotten their hands on a pair, we now know some of those details.

Jay Lee, with some help from Liam McLoughlin, managed to find Glass's USB debugging setting and hook it up to ADB which in turn spilled the additional specs:

  • Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich
  • OMAP 4430 CPU - Dual Core
  • 682mb of RAM

It's not all the data you might want, however. Lee says he had trouble determining the exact MHz of the CPU, and that Kernel messages suggest the actual RAM might be 1GB with some stolen away for hardware; it's not totally clear. You can dig through all the info here.

But in the absence of any official specs from Google, this is the best we can get for now. And who knows, things could change by the time a real consumer model actually rolls out, but these seem to be the specs for the specs floating around right now and knowledge is power!

So, obviously, these specs aren't supercharged, spec wise (see what I did there?), but before everybody freaks out, it's worth noting that most of the heavy lifting is done by the Android phone it's paired with (I believe). The stuff it does on its own probably doesn't need much in the way of horsepower. Probably.
