Samsung is currently developing a competitor to Google’s Glass, which could make its debut at the IFA trade show in Berlin this September.

A report from the Korea Times quotes unnamed Samsung officials saying that "the market potential for smart glass is huge. It will be used in trucks, cars and has a greater impact on related industries such as glass- and coatings-makers.”

The report says that the Galaxy Glass will connect to a smartphone to let the user handle calls and listen to music.

In other wearable tech news, Google has launched four frames to accompany Glass. Meaning those with eye prescriptions can now use the tech.

The four frames are available in a choice of eight colours and are separate to Glass, costing $225 each.
