Samsung Galaxy Ring was announced at the Galaxy Unpacked event on Wednesday, January 17. It was accompanied by a small teaser video which hinted at the design. It was claimed to be a “health and wellness device.” However, the company did not reveal any feature details, nor did it confirm a launch timeline. Several leaks about the Galaxy Ring have surfaced online over the past few days. The possible dimensions of the smart ring were suggested previously, now it has been spotted on one of the firm’s software suites.
A Reddit user spotted the Samsung Galaxy Ring on the Good Lock application under the battery widgets section alongside other Samsung devices. This suggests that the device is under development and is likely to launch soon. It has previously been tipped to launch later this year alongside the purported Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6.
An earlier report claimed that the upcoming Galaxy Ring will be “incredibly” lightweight. It is expected to be available in multiple sizes up to size 13 (22.2mm). The smart ring may also launch with three colour options. It is also likely to support pogo pin charging.
From the company teaser of the Samsung Smart Ring earlier this year, we have seen a round, smooth ring equipped with multiple sensors placed on the underside. These are expected to help users with health and fitness tracking. The company touts it to be a “powerful and accessible health and wellness device.”
The Galaxy Ring, like most health and fitness trackers, has been tipped to be able to track, measure, monitor, and upload health, fitness, and sleep data to necessary applications. Older leaks suggested that the device may carry electrocardiogram (ECG), photoplethysmography (PPG) or atrial fibrillation or AFib sensors, alongside the more common 24×7 heart rate, SpO2, and sleep trackers.
