While we know a lot about the Galaxy Ring after Samsung previewed it at MWC, there are some details that the company keep under wraps such as the price. Now, new chatter has shed light about the premium price of the Galaxy Ring.

Samsung Galaxy Ring price and premium plan

Based on the prices posted by frequent leaker Yogesh Brar on X, the Galaxy Ring will cost INR 35,000 (~$420) in India while it would command between $300 to $350 in the USA. The cost would place the first Samsung ring in line with premium alternatives from competition such as the Oura Ring Gen 3 and Ultrahuman Ring Air that are priced at $300 and $350, respectively.

Besides paying the full price, Samsung might also run a subscription program with the ring that will include extra features and deeper insights through the Samsung Health app according to Brar. This was also hinted by Samsung's VP Dr. Hon Pak in an interview with CNBC earlier this year.

The leaker added that the paid Samsung Health plan could cost below $10 per month, and it appears to be an optional premium service for users rather than being mandatory.

If this were to happen, this will not be a major surprise as both Oura and Ultrahuman also offer comparable subscription services. Similarly, Apple and Fitbit both have paid fitness subscriptions as well, which Samsung could take a page from. However, it's still unclear how this will play out with the company's other wearable devices like with the Galaxy smartwatches and wireless earbuds.

Likewise, there's still a chance Samsung might make it free for the first year or until a specific period. This is similar to how it first planned to include some Galaxy AI features behind a paywall at launch, but only to retract and eventually make it free to all.

Samsung is widely expected to fully reveal the Galaxy Ring at an Unpacked event in July where the South Koreans will also announce the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 alongside the Galaxy Watch 7 lineup.

Will you buy the Galaxy Ring if it were priced according to the rumor? Perhaps are you open to paying to obtain extra features? Let us hear your thoughts.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
