Several reports leaked online indicate that the South Korean tech giant Samsung is planning to introduce a Google glass like eye-wear gadget which is capable of playing music, receiving call via earphone built into the eyewear’s frame.
The company’s intention of launching eyewear gadget has been actually revealed by a patent filling at the Korean Intellectual Property Office. The patent filling apparently shows a Samsung’s design for smartphone-connected glasses that can display information from the handset.
The sketch of the Samsung’s eyewear device reveals the presence of thumbnail-sized display over the left eyeglass instead of tiny display over the right eyeglass in Google’s eyewear that displays information and websites.
Most of the details related to this eyewear are still not clear at this point. The Samsung’s sketch and specifications even didn’t provide any clue whether the eyewear would be equipped with a touch control and a camera like Google Glass nor whether it would connect directly to the mobile internet or be a slave to a smartphone.
