Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) may be launching a Google Glass rival of their own. Samsung’s smart-glasses product is rumored to be launching at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin this September.

 

This is based on a Samsung executive’s interview with Korea Times. Samsung’s smart-glasses would let you see notifications from your smartphone and handle phone calls.

“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,” stated the Samsung executive in an interview with Korea Times. “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.”
