Snapchat's parent company may be gearing up to release a new version of its connected eyewear, Spectacles, according to a newly published FCC document first spotted by Variety.

Why it matters: This is a bold move on Snap's part — its first version of Spectacles didn't sell as well as the company had hoped, and it took a $40 million write down for excess inventory as a result.
