Samsung Reportedly Preparing Gear Glass for Debut in September

Gear Glass

New reports out of Korea claim that Samsung will be announcing their own Google Glass-like wearable units in September of this year. The news comes from Business Korea, who spoke with a Samsung representative that stated the company will be ready to “roll out Gear Glass” in time for IFA 2014. 

This year, IFA is being held in Berlin, Germany from September 5 through the 10. The Samsung rep went on to say that Gear Glass would be equipped to run with Tizen OS, Samsung’s own operating system, instead of anything Google has put together up to this point.

The unnamed representative went on to say, “following the roll out of our smartwatch Galaxy Gear last September of last year, we are slated to roll out Gear Glass this September.” Samsung has had a lot of experience with unique glass display devices in the past year, and they seem to believe that the Gear Glass is just another step in that process.

Whatever Gear Glass ends up being, we hope it is somewhat less dorky looking than Google Glass.

    At least it isn’t a full pair of glasses like Google’s.

  • Jonathan Ly

    If the Galaxy Gear and and Gear Fit are any indication……..that’s going to be an expensive POS.

      And lag harder than Alzheimers

    Came here for the lulz… was not disappointed

  • flosserelli

    It will lag like molasses and all the notifications will block your view. But people will still buy it for the removable battery and memory card slot.

      don’t forget their BAND-AID “design” strategy!
      DImpled blue, gold and black Gear Glass.
      With Tizen.
      With Touchwiz.
      With carrier bloatware.
      With carrier logos.
      With pimple camera.
      In a “wooden” box!

      The next dimpled thing.

    I won’t knock it until it’s released.. The only bad thing that can come out of this is if it runs Samsungs versions of Google Apps which I have a strong feeling it does..

    • Mark Aaron Collado

      TIZEN

      • https://www.heartbleedbug.com Intellectua1

        Yea or Tizen but I’m kinda doubting it’ll run Tizen

        • Ryan

          Considering that it doesn’t sport the Galaxy brand, I would assume it will indeed run Tizen instead of Android.

            Good point

        While ugly SAMSUNG’s “designs” are conscious DECISIONS of their “designers” OKed by their executives.
