We've already heard rumors of a Samsung face-mounted wearable in development and a new report may suggest an actual name. Previously dubbed 'Gear Glass,' a recent trademark application in Korea suggests such a device might actually be known as the 'Gear Blink.'

Any such product would be a direct competitor to Google Glass, and previous reports have slated this September's IFA 2014 event in Berlin, Germany, as where we'll get to see it for the first time. Traditionally Samsung throws a huge event at IFA, with previous years seeing the Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Gear introduced alongside new Galaxy Note devices.

So, Samsung or Google? Which would you prefer all up in your face?

I guess face/head wearables are the way of the future. They just have to be more affordable and stylish I think before they will really catch on. Great concept though

Raw materials for Google Glass indicate there is room for a price drop. Having a direct competitor should help with the price tag..

I'll be more interested in it and any other competitor products (including Google Glass) one a price point is announced.

People who are spending $1500 on google's beta product are nuts if you ask me.
