There have been rumours mounting that Samsung is preparing to bring its own take on Google Glass to the market.

Recent reports from Korea indicate that the South Korean company may unveil its own ‘Gear Glass’ at IFA in September this year, alongside its Galaxy Note Phablet.

Although complete details are not yet available, the high-tech specs may be equipped with the Tizen OS, which the company uses in its latest Galaxy smartwatches.

"The Gear Glass design combines an ear piece and display, enabling people to listen to music with the right ear while looking at the display with the right eye," the Korean publication, Business Korea, alleged.

In the same month, Samsung filed a trademark application for a device known as "Samsung Gear Blink", according to the Guardian, while a patent earlier this year showed a headset that combined an earphone with a heads-up display placed in front of the wearer’s eye.
