Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Ring. Another missed train from Apple?

2024 looks like it will be a key year for the world's two main mobile phone companies. On the one hand, Apple will launch the Vision Pro, the first virtual computer that seeks to revolutionize the way we work and interact with our environment. On the other hand, Samsung is working on launching the Galaxy RingBut what is it exactly?

Samsung Galaxy Ring: the ultimate accessory?

Samsung smart watches are in the top 3 best smartwatches in the world. Despite its success, the Korean company does not want to rest on its laurels and seeks to continue improving and developing new products. One of the rumors that has gained the most weight in recent months is the launch of the Samsung's first technological ring.

He Samsung Galaxy Ring It is a portable device whose main attraction is that it can be used with the fingers of the hand and that complements its successful line of smart watches.

Its functions, a priori, become very similar to those we have in the Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy Watch, offering health and fitness data, but with a much more elegant, minimalist and smaller design.

Samsung carries quite a few years working on this little smart ring and its development grew when it began to register different patents throughout 2022 and the Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) granted the trademark for the Samsung Galaxy Ring.

What features will this new smart ring have?

According to patents registered by Samsung, the ring can offer good quality health monitoring, thanks to the integration of ECG and PPG sensors, which would allow heart rate measurements to be taken and temperature control. However, its features do not end here, since there is another patent that points to a possible integration into the smart home.

Continuing with its benefits, The Elec media reported the possibility that the ring will also use digital intelligence to obtain positional information from your fingers and hands, which would improve tracking in Augmented and Virtual Reality applications.

Finally, one of the most interesting specifications is its sizethat is, a single model for all users, so it will be a ring with standard dimensions for all audiences, without initially presenting Ultra or SE versions.

What price will it have and when will it be launched?

A device with such complex and innovative technology surely has a fairly high price. However, it seems that Samsung wants to avoid the price being a handicap for its purchase, hovering around 300 euros, like the Oura Ring 3. With the Korean firm's strategy of raising prices and then progressively lowering them, it could be a bestseller in the future.

Regarding its launch, it is expected that in the third quarter of 2024, the Seoul-based company will present the new devices along with the presentation of the Z Fold 6 and Z Fild 6 and their marketing begins in 2025. Other sources argue that Samsung will present it along with the new S24 family, but in the absence of final renders of this product, the first date takes more weight.

In conclusion, 2024 will be a key year for the Seoul company, a company that has proven to be capable of launching very interesting products, but still lacks a product or accessory that classifies Samsung as a true innovative brand. Will 2024 be your year? At Manzana Mordida we will be waiting to report.
