The Samsung Galaxy Ring has now been confirmed to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 in Barcelona, ​​which is currently underway. The South Korean tech giant also revealed that its Samsung Health platform will play a vital role in wearables tracking vital health indicators and offering information to users. Additionally, the company’s AI suite will also be extended to its broader portfolio. A report earlier claimed that the Galaxy Ring could also come in three different colors and multiple sizes.

Announcement in a post via its Newsroom, Samsung said that the Galaxy Ring will be “publicly shown for the first time” at MWC 2024. The date and time of the unveiling were not disclosed. Since this is the first public unveiling, it is unlikely to make it to the company’s stands for enthusiasts to try.

The Galaxy Ring will be introduced as a new health form factor, the company revealed. It will be linked to the Samsung Health platform, which is being revamped and modernized, according to earlier reports. The company hasn’t released any new images of the product, but that’s understandable since it’s so close to its official launch.

According to earlier reports, the Galaxy Ring wearable is expected to feature a 24×7 heart rate monitor, SpO2 (blood oxygen) sensor, sleep tracking and other fitness tracking capabilities. It may also get a blood pressure monitoring feature.

Separately, the South Korean giant also announced that a big focus will be on Galaxy AI during the launch. Samsung previously announced that AI features will be expanded to existing smartphones, including the Galaxy S23 series, Tab S9 series, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy S23 FE. But now it has revealed that the AI ​​suite will also be extended across different product lines. The Galaxy Book 4 series and the Galaxy Watch 6 series will get Galaxy AI features, albeit a more specific version of them. Laptops will get “smart productivity” features, while smartwatches will get “smart health” features.

The post also gave a glimpse of what the “smart health” package might look like, highlighting two features. The new My Vitality Score feature will offer personalized health information based on sleep quality and quantity, daily activity, average heart rate, heart rate variability, and more. The second feature, called the Booster Card, will track users’ pre-set goals and offer information on how they can be achieved. Expect more details after the official presentation.
