Now that Google Glass is publicly available for sale, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) is ready to step up its smart-glasses game.
According to Business Korea, a Samsung employee said a Google Glass competitor will be launching in September called “Samsung Gear Glass” and it will debut at the annual IFA electronics show in Berlin.
The wearable glasses product will include an ear place and display. The Gear Glass product will be powered by the Samsung Tizen OS. Tizen currently powers the Samsung Gear line of smart-watches.
