At MWC 2024, Samsung confirmed several features of the Galaxy Ring. These include sleep-related metrics, fertility tracking, and a readiness score for the day.

Battery capacities for prototypes ranged from 14.5mAh to 21.5mAh, with weights between 2.3g and 2.9g. The ring will be available in nine sizes and three finishes: gold, silver, and black.

An early patent suggests potential smart home integration, allowing control of connected devices. Another patent indicates possible XR applications for hand and finger tracking. The ring may also offer ECG functionality, blood flow measurement, wireless payments, and device control, though these details are not confirmed.
