It seems that they will launch new Portal hardware this year. It will arrive around the end of the year.
Facebook‘s Vice President for AR/VR, Andrew Bosworth, confirmed to The Verge that Facebook will have “More things we will reveal later this fall,”
He added that there will be a “New form factor that we will aim to send.”
No more info and still unknown about what might be a new form factor they mean.
It was reported that Facebook was working on a product that would allow the users to use video calling services using their large TV.
The camera device will only stick to the top of the TV. Then, it will show the video feed on the big screen.
This will clear the need for the people to have special devices for video chat. Also, it put this ability in a much more central location at home.
Facebook may also have other form factors in the progress. Maybe a more low-cost option, which will be far in spreading the reach of their Portal hardware to more people.
So, we must be patient until the end of this year to find out the latest products from Facebook.
