We can’t say we’re surprised by news that Samsung might want to attack yet another segment of the emerging wearable technology market. This time, leakster Eldar Murtazin is reporting that Samsung will be looking to launch their own-branded tech-infused glasses at some point in Spring 2014. According to him, it will be called the “Gear Glass,” though he didn’t have much other information to share.
It’s unknown which platform Samsung would look to leverage with Gear Glass, but one can assume Android has a good shot of being the driving force behind any experience Samsung is looking to cook up due to their desire to make all their mobile products compatible with each other.
With that, we’re not sure if Samsung would look to use Google’s home-brewed glasses experience (assuming it could be ready for public consumption). It sounds like it could hit store shelves around the same time that Google is looking to make Google Glass available to the general public, though, which could suggest they’re working on their own platform.
It’s way too early to tell what they’re thinking in regards to this whole thing, so we’ll try not to get too far ahead of ourselves. That said, we are curious to know if you’d be down to purchase one of these things if these rumors do indeed turn out to be true. Be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
