Samsung Galaxy Ring Launch Might Get Delayed to a Later Date
The eagerly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Ring, originally rumored to make its debut alongside the Galaxy S24 series in January 2024, is now slated for a later unveiling in either Q3 2024 or Q1 2025, as reported by South Korean publication The Elec.
Samsung Galaxy Ring Might Get Delayed?
According to sources, the design of the Samsung Galaxy Ring remains a work in progress, and the current iteration of the Ring, while boasting multiple features, is deemed too large for commercialization. Samsung’s focus is now on reducing its size while maximizing its functionality.
Additionally, Samsung’s approach to the Galaxy Ring includes offering it in multiple sizes, with the company collaborating with various partners for its development, including Doosung Tech and Korea Seongjeon.
The tentative plan is to introduce it to the market in Q3 2024, alongside the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6. However, this timeline could be subject to change if Samsung decides to seek medical device certification for it, a process that may extend over several months. In such a case, the Galaxy Ring’s release could be postponed to Q1 2025.
The Elec’s report also suggests that Samsung is exploring the possibility of creating a Galaxy Ring model compatible with extended reality (XR) and mixed reality (MR) devices, hinting at the brand’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the realm of wearable technology.
