A new patent filing describes a helmet-shaped smart wearable that might end up launching as a Google Glass alternative some day, although Samsung has already unveiled a device with this name.

As strange as it may seem, Samsung has filed for a trademark for a product they already unveiled earlier this year. Unfortunately, that device is not available for purchase yet, but things could change soon, and Google Glass might finally face a worthy competitor.

Dubbed Samsung Ahead, the product is a triangular device that is used on a helmet and pairs with any smartphone with Bluetooth connectivity. The device attaches to the helmet thanks to a few magnets, and it provides the usual features of a smart wearable - it can play music, make phone calls, or interact with the connected handset without removing the helmet.

For now, there is no information on pricing or availability, but the trademark filing suggests that Samsung Ahead might soon hit the market. Next time it will probably surface at TENAA or on a benchmark database, so stay tuned.
