Galaxy Ring

Samsung’s ever-first Galaxy Ring is about to take the floor at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event. The wearability of the Galaxy ring will be more appealing as compared to bulky smartwatches. A new report is unveiling the nine different models and more. 

The new report reported that the Galaxy Ring was spotted through the FCC today, which showcases nine different models, pictures of each, battery capacities per size, and the charging cradle that will help to keep your ring powered. The ring has been spotted on FCC and listed under the number A3LSMQ503. That tipped a model number for the ring: SM-Q503, which is referred to in the filing as the ‘basic model’ and is the smallest size. 

A total of nine model numbers have come into existence on FCC documentation, which is mentioned below: 

  • SM-Q500, SM-Q501, SM-Q502, SM-Q503, SM-Q505, SM-Q506, SM-Q507, SM-Q508, and SM-Q509. 

The documents show off every single size of the nine different Galaxy Ring variants next to their model number. The Korean giant has revealed that there will be nine size variants for the Galaxy Ring. The FCC filing reveals that the battery capacity varies by size, which is mentioned below: 

  • 17 mAh (smallest) 
  • 18.5 mAh, mid-range 
  • 22.5 mAh (largest 

As expected for a wearable, it will also connect through Bluetooth LE. It will be interesting to see what new novelties, specs, features, and size variants the upcoming Galaxy Ring will bring.

Samsung Galaxy Ring could ask for a subscription to access the full functionality

Galaxy Ring With Samsung Health

The Korean brand ‘Samsung’ is looking forward to expanding its smart wearable device range by introducing the latest smart wearable Galaxy device. The Galaxy Ring is the next in line to make its debut. As reported, the upcoming Galaxy Ring will ask you for subscriptions to access full functionality.

Galaxy Ring is the first-ever smart wearable ring of the Korean giant, which will bring advanced health monitoring features, but to access the full functionality, it will ask you for a subscription. Although a subscription for the wearable device is not new, Samsung would not be the first brand to couple its hardware or features to a subscription. 

On the comparison side, the Whoop 4.0 strap offers the strangest example; you get the tracker free with a membership, but the membership is the actual cost. Also, the Oura Ring 3 asks you for a monthly subscription to access most features, with only basic data available for free. 

If Samsung adopts a similar model, features presently free on Galaxy Rings and watches might be locked behind subscriptions. However, it would not be beneficial or even make any sense for the Korean giant to copy Oura. Since the Galaxy Ring will be its first smart ring, rendering most of its features inaccessible would stop fulfilling the satisfaction of customers. 

The giant isn’t disinclined to wall off features, either. It reserves its Watch’s blood pressure monitoring and ECG readings for Galaxy phone users, even if the essential hardware is built into the watch, not the phone. The company is setting up to introduce new health features that require complex calculations based on Galaxy AI, which might justify subscription fees in the future, particularly keeping in mind Samsung’s lack of commitment to free Galaxy AI access beyond 2025 on Galaxy S series smartphones. 

Noticeably, a subscription service for Galaxy smart wearable devices will be worthwhile when it offers personalized wellness guidance powered by Galaxy AI; currently, Samsung Health lacks this feature. However, each brand does not ask for a subscription fee to process and contextualize your fitness level and health. It will be interesting to see how much Samsung will ask to pay for the subscription.

A New Samsung Galaxy Ring gets US Patent approval: Maybe the Galaxy Ring 2

Galaxy Ring

The Korean brand ‘Samsung’ is expanding its smart wearable products by introducing the brand’s ever-first smart wearable ring called the Galaxy Ring. Before the launch of the first-generation smart ring, a new Galaxy Ring that received US patent approval could be the Galaxy Ring 2. 

The Korean giant will introduce a bunch of the latest Galaxy products at the next Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris at the Louvre Museum on July 10, including the Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Watch Ultra, Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Buds 3, Galaxy Buds 3 Pro, and Galaxy Ring. 

Before any official announcement regarding the Galaxy Ring leaks and rumors, there were already a lot of details reported. Previously, mosaic promo images of all the products expected to launch at the upcoming event were leaked, suggesting Galaxy Ring could also be a part of it. The Galaxy Ring’s FCC certification revealed multiple details about the forthcoming health-tracking device. It has already been reported that the Galaxy Ring is expected to arrive in different variants based on sizes ranging from 5 to 12. 

The ring is expected to feature a 17 mAh battery for the 5, 6, and 7 sizes. Whereas the bigger sizes, including 8, 9, 10, and 11, would feature an 18.5 mAh battery. The bigger ring, size 12, would have a 22.5 mAh battery. The differently designed charging case of the Galaxy Ring was also revealed in early leaks, which suggest that the case is similar to Ringconn’s charging case. 

Meanwhile, the first-generation Galaxy Ring has yet to officially launch; allegedly, a new Samsung Galaxy Ring has received US patent approval. If the report by 91Mobiles is to be believed, the patent was filed back in May 2024 at the US Patent Application Publication, and it reveals some key details of the design of the alleged Galaxy Ring 2. The patent suggests a circular ring, with the sensors housed inside the inner layer. 

The notable change that the patent reveals is that the new version has a squarish outer layer. The ring also appears to be a bit elongated and is not a circular ring, such as in the present Galaxy Ring’s design. It is speculated that the squarish outer layer might have an AMOLED display to interact with and view the health stats. It is also reported that the ring could arrive with an ECG sensor, temperature sensor, acceleration sensor, fingerprint sensor, and more.
