From San Jose, USA – Samsung has revealed that it is working on a new device: the Galaxy Ring. For now there is little information, but the company gave the spoiler of the equipment during a video presented at the launch of the Galaxy S24.
The device is expected to help monitor the health and well-being of the person using it. The smart ring format is on the rise, so much so that several companies (of various sizes) showed similar products during CES 2024, an electronics and technology fair that took place last week in Las Vegas
Tecnoblog found out that the product should not be launched in the first half of the year. It is expected to be announced in detail throughout the second half of 2024. Our team wasn’t able to try it out during the Unpacked event because there weren’t any units available.
Trademark and app gave clues about Galaxy Ring
It’s been a while since some hints about a Samsung smart ring have started to emerge. The company had held a patent for a ring to collect health data since October 2021.
In recent months, the rumors have intensified. In March 2023, the company filed for registration of the Galaxy Ring trademark in the U.S., which would be used for “wearable smart devices.” In July, South Korean media reported that the product was already in development.
The most recent information was in September, when users found a ring icon in the Galaxy Wearable app, also used by Samsung’s smartwatches and wireless headphones.
The smart ring market still has few representatives. The most famous of these is the Oura Ring, which can be used to monitor sleep, heart rate, stress and more, and is even used by professional athletes.
Who also once had a smart ring was Amazon. Launched in 2019, the Echo Loop had a different purpose: to give voice commands to Alexa and make phone calls.
