Since several years, rumors have been claiming that Samsung is working on smart glasses. In 2014, it had trademarked the “Gear Blink” moniker in South Korea. At that time, it was speculated to debut as a smart contact lens that could be paired with a smartphone. The company has recently trademarked a new logo that seems to belong to its rumored smart glasses.
The logo likes a tilted human eye and it has an interesting description “computerized vision-assisted eyewear consisting of a camera / computer / display for capturing / processing / display an image,” and “computer hardware for analyzing and configuring vision-assisted eyewear.” This seems to be a hint that the arrival of the Samsung Gear Blink could be drawing near. However, since the trademark filing is unnamed, it is difficult to deduce what this product be.
There is a possibility that the above logo may not be related to smart glasses. It may belong to an upcoming product from Samsung’s health equipment business. The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech expo is drawing near. One of the major highlights of the event is the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones. There is no information on whether it will be showcasing the rumored smart glasses at MWC 2018.
