Samsung Gear Blink

Everyone knows about the Google Glass as it is a trending topic; well Samsung doesn’t want to be an underdog, and it is coming into the competition with Google wearable Glass with its Samsung Gear Blink. Reports from South Korea claim that the name is probably referring the blinking action of the eyes, making a clear note it will be a wearable based glasses.

Report did not mention anything about the specifications or the operating system of the device for now, but we can easily expect it to run something other than Android as, Galaxy is not been mentioned by the company in the name of the device. We have seen the Samsung Gear smart-watches were running on Tizen OS, and the Galaxy branding is missing there.

As it will be featuring Bluetooth earpiece and also a head-up display. The reports also claimed that this device might be launched alongside the rumored Galaxy Note 4 at the IFA 2014 that is due in September.
