Samsung confirmed the existence of its first smart ring tracker back at the Galaxy S24 event in January. Since then, the company has decided to play the long-term game, leaving out the actual launch date and specifications of the wearable. However, a new rumor from Samsung's home turf points to a July announcement for the Galaxy Ring.

Samsung Galaxy Ring release date and features

South Korean news outlet ET News mentioned in its latest report that Samsung plans to reveal the Galaxy Ring sometime in July at its second Unpacked event. Most notably, the timing would align it with the debut of Samsung's next-generation foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6. The launch window would make sense as it could be a stretch if the company decided to settle for a later date.

The publication also revealed some key features of the Galaxy Ring, although some appear to be questionable. According to them, the tracker will feature “blood flow measurement and electrocardiogram functions”, which could mean measurement of the blood oxygen and heart rate, considering those two features are not feasible in a device the size of a ring.

The Galaxy Ring is said to support sleep tracking and wireless payment through NFC. The ring will also be available in eight different sizes, although the exact color options were not revealed. In addition, the ring is tipped to be “impressively light” based on the user's first-hand experience.

While the Galaxy Ring is still in the testing and prototyping phases, Samsung is expected to begin mass production of the smart ring in the second quarter or by the start of April.

Samsung's Galaxy Ring will be the first of its kind from a major smartphone manufacturer. At the same time, this will rival the likes of Oura Ring Horizon and Ultrahuman Ring Air. Chinese companies are set to follow Samsung as well, such as Oppo's plan for a smart ring revealed in a patent. So far, current developments suggest Apple's smart ring is far from being a reality.

Which vital health and fitness monitoring features do you want to see in Samsung's Galaxy Ring? Do you wish to see more advanced tracking solutions? We'd like to hear your opinion in the comments.

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.
