The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event presented the Galaxy AI and Galaxy S24 smartphones. At the end of the event, the South Korean tech giant demonstrated a smart ring called Galaxy Ring. Unfortunately, the brand did not disclose anything significant about it.
Samsung Galaxy Ring: what is known so far
So, what does Samsung have to say about the Galaxy Ring? Samsung claims that it is a “cutting-edge” device and “a powerful and affordable health and wellness device that will reshape the future of health in a way that only Samsung can.” The announcement was made by Dr. Matthew Wiggins, a research scientist at Samsung Research’s Clinical Research Department.
As for the appearance, the Galaxy Ring teaser suggests that it may be black in color. Samsung will confirm the technical details and availability of the Galaxy Ring later this year. It is expected to compete with smart rings like the Oura and Evie.
Samsung’s next major event this year will be the second Galaxy Unpacked event, which could take place in July for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldable phones. There is a possibility that the Galaxy Ring may be officially unveiled along with the new foldable phones.
According to previous reports, the Galaxy Ring may have support for ECG and smart home control systems. According to a patent application filed in February 2023, Samsung’s first smart ring will support tracking, measuring, monitoring, and uploading health, fitness, and sleep information. In addition, Samsung may incorporate some artificial intelligence features into its first smart ring.
By the way, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus were launched with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in markets such as the United States, South Korea, and China. In other regions, both phones will come with the Exynos 2400 chip. The S24 Ultra, on the other hand, will ship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in all markets. These devices will cost $799, $999 and $1,299 respectively.
