According to a report from the Korea Times, Samsung could be launching the Google Glass competitor known as Galaxy Glass in September later this year. A Samsung official who prefers to remain anonymous said the following – “The new smart glass to be introduced by Samsung is a new concept of wearable device that can lead to an exciting culture of communication. The smart glass will present our aim to lead the new market with proven capability. Wearable devices can’t generate profits immediately. Steady releases of devices are showing our firm commitment as a leader in new markets“.
It is claimed that the functionality of the Galaxy Glass will be very similar to the Galaxy Gear (in terms of UI look and feel), but in the form of sporty looking eye glasses. A patent application from a few months ago revealed the possible design of the Galaxy Glass which was described as Sports Glasses back then. The design also reveals a wire hanging out from the device as well as built in earplugs which make great additions for a wearable device like this. Maybe we will get to see the Galaxy Glass at the IFA event in Berlin, which takes place in September every year.
