Even as concerns mount over Facebook’s presence on our daily lives, the company is moving forward with two new smart displays in the form of the new portable Portal Go and an updated Portal+.
According to a press release by Facebook, as earlier reported by Engadget, the Portal Go is a 10-inch tablet priced at $199 with a built-in battery that can be unplugged and moved around the house. The next generation Portal+ will come with a 14-inch HD tilting display, priced at $349. Both units will ship on October 19 with pre-orders available on Facebook’s Portal website.
Facebook is touting the Portal Go’s 12MP front-facing smart camera for video calls. Much like the iPhone’s face tracking feature for FaceTime, Portal’s camera can follow your face as you walk around the frame for more “immersive video calls.”
