After unveiling the new Google Clips camera last year during October 2017, it seems that the new photographic and video equipment designed by Google is moving closer to a worldwide launch and has this week been spotted making its way through the FCC. Indicating that an official launch may soon be happening even if it is in the US to start.
To recap the new Google Clips camera has been specially designed to capture special moments without the need to be behind the camera itself, allowing you to take part in the action. The camera captures short motion photos that last several seconds, called “clips” hence the camera’s name.
Google explains that the lightweight, hands-free camera has been created to help you capture more “spontaneous moments” and can be positioned almost anywhere, thanks to its integrated clip. As you would expect Clips comes with its own companion smartphone application that allows you to control the shutter if the shutter button on the camera is out of reach, as well as view and share captured video clips and images.
Unfortunately, Google has not yet confirmed an official release date or even expressed any release timeframe. But when it does launch the Google Clip camera is expected to be priced at $249 in the US. Clips will support both iOS and Android devices, in the form of the Samsung S7 and 8 and on iPhone (6 and up). As more information is made available by Google, we will keep you up to date as always.
