It would appear the hype for smart glasses, such as Google Glass, has come and gone.

However, according to SamMobile, Samsung has filed in South Korea to trademark a new logo for “computerized vision-assisting eyewear.”

A few years ago there were reports that Samsung was designing its own Google Glass competitor called Galaxy Glass, yet that idea never came to fruition.


Obviously, this news doesn’t mean Samsung has smart glasses on the immediate horizon, but it certainly suggests the company hasn’t completely abandoned the idea.

Other words in the patent include “computer software for analyzing and configuring vision-assisting eyewear,” “computer software for setting up, configuring, and controlling wearable peripheral for computer and mobile devices, namely headsets, display devices, and glasses.”
