Things are working at a fast pace to bring out “Sports Glasses”, Samsung’s answer to Google Glass. Recently the tech world went viral with reports of the South Korean giant filing a design patent with the Korean Intellectual Property Office.

However, as per the reports it is believed that unlike Google Glass that works independently, the Samsung glasses would be connected to a smartphone with a transparent or translucent lens.

As per the patent filing: “This design is of a type [of glasses] with earphones integrated, allowing [users] to take phone calls and listen to music during workouts.”

This is not for the first time that Samsung has come out with a smartphone gear. Just recently the South Korean had launched a smart watch called Galaxy Gear that works when connected with the smarthphone. In the picture of the design patent that went viral, a Glass like headset is shown with a camera mounted on the left side instead of the right, and featuring earphones that rest within the ear instead of using bone conduction to send audio.

It is also being reported that the “Sports Glasses” would come with a pull-out microUSB connector that could be used for charging the device when not in use. Also the glasses would be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth. However it is unclear whether the glasses would come having limited connectivity with specific phones like the Galaxy gear smartwatch or whether it could be paired with any Samsung device. The watch is expected to be made available in April 2014.
