Samsung probably has something up its sleeve, as a report from Korea Times say that the company might launch a rival to Google Glass (pictured) in time for the IFA trade show to be held this September in Berlin.

Citing unnamed Samsung executives, the device is called “Samsung Galaxy Glass”, which can be connected to your smartphone. It displays all alerts and even allows wearers to listen to music.

The report did not reveal any details about the hardware, but Samsung Electronics is said to collaborate with another Samsung Display to develop the Galaxy Glass.

“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 unnamed official was quoted saying, according to the report. “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 so-called Samsung Galaxy Glass would be a follow-up to Samsung’s first wearable device, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, which debuted during last year’s IFA.
