Samsung is a pioneer name in the smartphone and electronics business. Its smart wearables are also largely popular among the masses. And the latest financial report from the South Korean tech giant is shedding light on its future plans for smartwatches and smart rings. More about Samsung’s future smartwatch and smart ring plans in this article.

Samsung’s Plan for Future Smartwatch and Smart Ring:

Q1 Financial Reports

With the Q1 financial reports, Samsung has denoted a consolidated revenue of whopping USD 52 billion, thanks to the strong sales of the flagship S24 smartphones as well as memory semiconductors. Its Mobile eXperinece (MX) business garnered higher earnings while the Visual Display and Digital Appliances also showed an increase in profits.

MX Business will expand with new Smartwatches

The report also mentions the expansion of its Mobile eXperience business by adding new models including premium ones and new form factor products like the Galaxy Ring. The current offering includes the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, which are some of the best in the ring of WearOS smartwatches.

The former is available in two dials sizes: 40mm and 44mm. And so is the latter with 43mm and 47mm sizes. Samsung also provided 5 ATM + IP68 certified and MIL-STD-810G compliant certifications for the duos, ensuring top-notch ingress protection. Plus, the health tracking features are also plenty here with 90 workout modes and real-time heart rate, SpO2, blood pressure plus skin temperature measurements.

Both siblings house an Exynos W930 processor with 2x Cortex-A55 cores at 1.4GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. Sensors-wise you are covered with a Samsung BioActive Sensor (Optical Heart Rate + Electrical Heart Signal + Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) and all other adequate sensors.

But if you peek at the competition, Apple’s Watch Ultra 2 packs a punch with more solid features and a premium price tag. So, Samsung might just add a direct competitor to it, by the Galaxy Watch Ultra moniker. Meanwhile, the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 Series is also designated to get some new tastes in terms of features like blood sugar monitoring.

Galaxy Smart Ring

While discussing the Smart Ring, the company has already unveiled a prototype at MWC 2024. As per Samsung, it will come in US rings sizes 5 to 13 with three color options: Ceramic Black, Platinum Silver, and Gold. Health tracking features will include heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, SpO2 measurement, and so on. Plus, rumors are also pointing toward an ECG sensor and an ability to control other Samsung devices as well.
