According to a report from a Korean news site, Samsung may release a Google Glass like device called Gear Glass. And it could run Tizen, instead of Android.

According to Business Korea, a Samsung associate reportedly said the following:

We rolled out the smartwatch first, and have secured a considerable amount of smart glass-related technology and patents. Following the roll out of our smart watch Galaxy Gear in September last year, we are slated to introduce our smart glass Gear Glass this September.

The design would probably be similar to Google Glass, where a small prism will be placed slightly above one eye for viewing content and an earpiece for listening. The wearable will also likely run Samsung’s open-source operating system, Tizen. The Korean electronics giant might wait until September during IFA, a big tech conference in Berlin, to announce the alleged Gear Glass.

So far, all these are just rumors. It remains to be seen if the Gear Glass will push through. For all we know, it could turn out to be another erroneously posted news bit about Google Glass.
