Galaxy Ring: Samsung’s Smart Ring Design Revealed at Unpacked
Not only were Galaxy AI and the Galaxy S24 (comparison) smartphones the highlights of Samsung’s recently wrapped up Unpacked event in San Jose, California, the South Koreans managed to sneak a surprise announcement about its upcoming first smart ring tracker. This device has been confirmed to carry the Galaxy Ring moniker. Here’s what we know about the Samsung Galaxy Ring.
Samsung Galaxy Ring design and sensors
At the end of the keynote, Samsung presented a short clip that revealed the Galaxy Ring and its design. We were privy to the entire form factor of the device, which appears to feature a thick ring design alongside protruding sensors and charging contacts within the inner ring section.
The rendered color showed a blackish sort of dark shade, which makes it difficult to tell with all the shadows in the video. However, it is possible that Samsung will introduce other hues or style options, such as the Ring One, that will accompany the Galaxy Ring at launch.
Apart from the design and name, other details and specifications about the Galaxy Ring remain scarce, including the battery life and types of on-board biometric sensors. There was also no mention of when will the formal announcement take place, its availability, or pricing details. Perhaps it is possible they make the smart ring official in July or September alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Flip 6 foldables. Who knows for sure?
In terms of features, though, Galaxy AI does seem to be integrated into the Samsung smart ring. The AI should come as part of the Samsung Health platform to manage different health tracking readings and features, similar to what Samsung plans to do with its existing wearables like the Galaxy Watch 6.
What do you think of the Galaxy Ring? Which features should Samsung add? We’re eager to hear your thoughts on this.
