Samsung Glasses Trademark Suggests a New Frontier in Wearable Tech

Samsung was working with Google and Qualcomm to develop an XR gadget, and the company said that the device is not too far away. A new trademark application has appeared that may shed light on the headset’s name, even though the type of headgear the South Korean tech is designing is still unknown. The trademark can be found on the official UK government website under the Intellectual Property Office section. The manufacturer, Samsung Electronics, filed it on August 21, and on November 10, it was officially approved and registered. It is essential that the companies indicate the product categories they want their UK trademark to cover when filing, and Samsung chose several categories from an authorized pre-return list.

  • Virtual reality headsets
  • Augmented reality headsets
  • Headphones
  • Smartphones
  • Smart glasses

The specifics point to a potential future in which Samsung may combine conventional electronics with state-of-the-art mixed reality technology. In other words, the collaboration between Samsung, Qualcomm, and Google to create an Extended Reality (XR) ecosystem is at the heart of this theory. According to reports, Samsung intends to sell the headset in December with a restricted initial quality of just 30,000 units after announcing it at an event in the second half of 2024. It was also said earlier that it will be designed in order to compete with the Apple Vision Pro and will have a price range of around $2000.

Independence confirmation from UploadVR status: Samsung informed developers of its plans to launch in late 2024. Samsung also teased a prototype of augmented reality glasses at CES in January 2020, but did not say if it was a future product or even acknowledge that it was a noteworthy demonstration of a technology. Looking at all of this, Samsung might be getting ready to launch AR glasses on the market in addition to the XR headset.
