Rumor: Samsung to announce Galaxy Glass at IFA this year


glasses-samsung-1

Samsung has been rumored to be working on wearable glasses similar to Google Glass, supposedly under the Gear Glass name, and according to a report from The Korea TimesSamsung will unveil Gear Glass this year at IFA in September. According to the report, the smart glasses are tentatively called “Galaxy Glass” – a Samsung official recently said that the company isn’t that interested in smart glasses at the moment as it wants to make wearable devices that “provide information at a glance without turning the people using them into cyborgs,” but the report and Samsung’s recent patent application for smart glasses suggest the company will join the smart glass market sooner or later.

According to an unnamed official, “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.” The report suggests that functionality will be similar to that of the Galaxy Gear, allowing smartphone users to view notifications, take phone calls, shoot pictures and control and listen to music, though hopefully, it will be compatible with more devices out of the box than Samsung’s first smartwatch.

      What do you expect Samsung to do? Sit back and do nothing, and just announce a boring product for the masses and Android geeks approve of? Whilst I agree they could cut down on half of the crap they release, at least LG/Samsung are the more ambitious Android OEMs that strive to be different, what the hell are Sony/HTC doing that is any different or unique. HTC hasn’t really contributed much over the past year and Sony just aren’t exciting or daring enough to be different, yeah they have a prettier music and gallery interface but that doesn’t translate into an innovative experience. Show me something they are doing which is different and fun and maybe I’ll wake up. Dude, I’ve got 4.3 on my S3, 4.4.2 will pretty much be the last update but it’s served me well unlike the POS Sony Xperia S which I still believe hasn’t moved past 4.0.4/4.1.2.
