Snapchat’s parent company Snap has announced that its latest version of Spectacles sunglasses is now available in Saudi Arabia, according to Trade Arabia.
Saudi-based electronics distributor eXtra will be the exclusive retail partner of Snap in the Kingdom.
Spectacles 3 offer users with dual HD cameras which promise to empower creativity in 3D and capture depth and dimension. The new design hopes to provide a rich 3D canvas and a suite of new 3D Effects on Snapchat.
Spectacles 3 are equipped with two HD cameras to capture Snaps in 3D and transform them with 3D Effects. Snaps captured using Spectacles 3 transfer in HD to Memories within Snapchat to add new lighting, landscapes, and other effects with a swipe.
Snaps can also export to the camera roll as circular, horizontal, square and virtual reality formats for saving, editing, and sharing.
Spectacles 3 feature a lightweight steel frame with circular lenses and adjustable acetate tips. The product comes in two colour options: carbon and mineral.
To use Spectacles 3, users can tap either button for video (up to 60 seconds continuously) or press and hold for a still. Spectacles 3 offers high-definition videos with high-fidelity audio from a 4-microphone array. An LED indicator notifies users when recording.
