Spotted from the repository of the UK IPO office (via SamMobile), Samsung filed new trademarks related to its unannounced Galaxy wearables. The listings only revealed the internal monikers of these devices, which were labeled as the Samsung Index, Samsung Circle, and Samsung Insight. At the same time, all three were classified as computer wearables, smartwatches, smart rings, and smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy smart ring and bracelet
Apart from the names, there were no details that described the features or functions of each device. However, we can speculate that the Samsung Index may be a similar trademark to the Galaxy Ring that Samsung submitted back in March. This could end up as a standalone tracker like Oura's smart ring or an accessory for the Galaxy reality headset.
It is very likely that the Samsung Circle might be the equivalent of a solid bracelet as opposed to an adjustable wristband in the form of a watch or fitness tracker. Although the converse could be true, it could also be utilized to improve controls of Samsung's head-mounted display.
Samsung Galaxy smart glasses
Regarding Samsung Insight, we can only think of the idea of a set of smart glasses or spectacles considering the rather obvious naming scheme. Once again, this might be a region-specific trademark that is similar to the Galaxy Glasses that the firm revealed earlier. Furthermore, the Galaxy Insight could be a lighter and more portable alternative to the upcoming Galaxy XR headset, which may run on Google's micro XR platform for AR glasses.
Nonetheless, all of these are only mere assumptions. In addition, these new trademarks are not a guarantee that all (or any) of the wearables will eventually materialize or be released in the near future. However, it is exciting to see that there are more wearables on the horizon beyond the smartwatch or headsets that we are currently privy to.
Do you think it is necessary for Samsung to launch a smart Galaxy ring or a bracelet? Will this be a useful and practical accessory for you?
