The new robot will receive an additional 30%+ battery increase, a better camera ( from 640p to 1048p) , a full colour screen and four obstacle sensors( instead of one in the original version). You may already noticed that the specs and the upgrades are now aligned to Vector 2.0 . Coincidence🕵️?
We can only speculate : Cozmo 2.0 can be a Vector 2.0 in disguise or vice versa, they may just run a different software firmware, sharing the same factory and the same design. Having a common design is convenient to reduce cost of manufacturing process, packing and replace parts.
Like in a sci-fi movie, could you imagine that in few click, using an “OTA Upgrade” , you could choose to load Vector or Cozmo personalities ?
It could be that the company is preparing the ground for new online functionalities and new sources of income : Cozmo 2.0 may require a subscription in future, just like Vector 1.0 and 2.0, but so far those are just my thoughts.
