Rumors have been talking about the development of a connected ring by Samsung for a while. And on January 17, during the Galaxy S24 launch event, the Korean giant finally confirmed these rumors. For the moment, this is not a launch for this ring. Samsung was content to make a “tease”, while confirming that the product is indeed under development.

At the moment, we do not know when the Galaxy Ring will be launched or its exact characteristics. In fact, the teaser only lasts a few seconds and only reveals the design of the ring.
