Samsung Getting Ready To Go “Head-to-Head” with Google Glass
It looks as though Samsung is getting ready to enter the smart glasses space. According to a report by the The Korean Times, Samsung is developing a Google Glass competitor which could be announced at the IFA in Berlin in September of this year.

The device is currently being called “Galaxy Glass”. Samsung has already registered a patent in Korea according to the Korea Intellectual Property Office. 
Like Samsung’s smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, the smart glasses are expected to be used as a smartphone companion, extending the core features of calling, notifications and music to a heads-up display which could include a transparent or translucent lens.
“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,” an official told The Korean Times.

Smart glasses are a growing segment of wearables, albeit not as large as the smartwatch and activity tracker space. At this year’s CES, Epson unveiled their latest version of Moverio which is less a smartphone companion and more a computer that also provides augmented reality experiences. Google, Recon, Meta, Atheer Labs and many other players are expected to release smart glasses in to the market at some point this year.
