At this level it’s pretty sure that the Galaxy Ring, Samsung’s entry into a brand new class of health-focused wearables, isn’t coming this 12 months. Now Ice Universe presents a launch window – the Ring might be introduced on the Galaxy S24 unveiling occasion in January.
Much more importantly, it appears like Samsung has excessive expectations of this new product line because the tipster says that the Galaxy Ring would be the star product of the occasion, maybe outshining the Galaxy S24 collection itself.
Whereas the Unpacked occasions for the S22 and S23 collection have been in February, there have been January launches too. And we’re already seeing detailed leaks in regards to the Galaxy S24 collection, so a barely earlier launch appears fairly doable. As for the ring, the query stays whether or not it is going to be prepared in time.
Samsung is reportedly prepared to start out mass manufacturing, however issues are transferring slowly as a result of further regulatory clearances wanted for a health-tracking product. The Ring is anticipated to synthesize the health-focused options of the Galaxy Watches whereas dropping essentially the most (all?) of the smartwatch options (it’s not clear whether or not it is going to actually have a show).
The smaller, much less obtrusive type issue of the Galaxy Ring may usher in a wider viewers – individuals who choose traditional watches or don’t wish to put on a watch in any respect, however nonetheless need sleep, coronary heart fee and train monitoring. And if Ice is correct, this might be greater than a ring-shaped sensible band, it is going to be Samsung’s Subsequent Huge Factor in wearables (talking of sensible bands, Samsung appears to have given up on the phase).
