According to Korea Times, a Samsung official has confirmed that the company is indeed developing a wearable device similar to the Google Glass, a rumor we have been hearing since last year. Dubbed as the Galaxy Glass, the smart wearable is planned to be released at IFA 2014 in Berlin.
The company official also said that wearable devices are long term investments, but Samsung believes that wearable devices will definitely play a big part in the future of mobile devices.
“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 wearable tech market has indeed showing signs of growth as more and more manufacturers has started to join in the fray, and soon consumers will have the opportunity to choose from various types and price range.
