The new version of Intel-powered Google Glass may look slimmer and sleeker than its earlier version.
The exteriors of the new device also adds a textured area to the touch-sensitive side panel where non-voice interactions are performed, media reports said.
Google Glass is expected to be unveiled next year.
The Google patent describes a sleeker version of Google Glass that should still draw plenty of public attention.
The entire thing appears more like a futuristic headset and less like a modified pair of glasses.
Google Glass is presently available for $1,500, though it is speculated that the final retail version will sell for a lot less.
Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format. Wearers communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
