Samsung apparently has two new products in the pipeline. At the very least, the South Korean tech company has filed for two new trademarks, the Samsung Galaxy Ring and Galaxy Glasses.
Samsung Galaxy Glasses could replace smartphone
With Samsung Galaxy Glasses and Samsung Galaxy Ring, information about two upcoming products of the tech giant were listed on the website of the South Korean patent office KIPRIS. What is behind them can already be guessed from the name. The Galaxy Glasses are supposed to give Samsung a successful premiere in the AR and VR sector. If you take a closer look at the application, it becomes clear that this could possibly be an egg-laying pillow. The device is listed under the categories VR glasses, AR headsets, smartphones and headphones. Samsung may even be planning a complete replacement for the smartphone here.

Samsung Galaxy Ring could replace wearables
Another upcoming product goes by the name Galaxy Ring. Here, too, the name immediately makes clear what it is supposed to be about. The whole thing is also clarified here by the grouping on KIPRIS. Thus one describes the ring here among other things with “intelligent rings”. This reminds us of the smart ring CNICK that we tested, which can be used for contactless payments, among other things. But Samsung apparently wants to go at least one step further here. After all, the ring is also sorted into the category “smart devices for measuring health indicators and/or sleep in the form of a ring”. This description could indicate that Samsung wants to move away from the classic wearable. Instead, rings could measure our health data like pulse in the future. This would provide significantly more comfort during sports.
Cooperation between ring and glasses?
Meanwhile, the rumor mill is buzzing about the extent to which the two gadgets could work together. According to industry experts, it is not a simple coincidence that Samsung Galaxy Glasses and Galaxy Ring were filed at the Patent Office on two consecutive days. It is speculated that the ring could be particularly useful in AR applications of the glasses.
Just imagine the ring being used as a cursor when navigating through the menu. That could simplify the operation considerably. Especially in the long run. If AR glasses were to actually replace the smartphone, there would no longer be a cell phone to control it. Making settings on the glasses themselves, on the other hand, would be time-consuming. That sounds like two exciting innovations. We are looking forward to more information from the company.
