TL;DR
  • Samsung suggested that it is working on making the Galaxy Ring compatible with other Android phones.
  • The Galaxy Ring will not be compatible with the iPhone, unfortunately.

At MWC 2024, attendees were able to get up close and personal with the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Ring. In addition to showing the health tracker off, Samsung has also dished out a few interesting details that may have been missed.

We attended a media briefing by Samsung, and vice-president Dr. Hon Pak suggested that the Galaxy Ring might support Android devices at large.

I think you should know that we’re working on not just a Galaxy (for the Ring), but an entire Android for the Ring to work.

This isn’t a clear confirmation that the Galaxy Ring will work with all Android devices out-of-the-box, but it definitely seems like Samsung wants to support non-Galaxy Android phones.

Unfortunately, it seems like iPhone support is out of the question, entirely. Pak noted that Samsung “recognized the Android/iOS challenge” but hoped that its devices were good enough for Apple users to switch.

The folks over at CNET managed to squeeze out some extra details about the Galaxy Ring too. The outlet reports that the smallest prototype model weighed 2.3 grams, while the largest weighed 2.9 grams. The publication also noted that the smallest ring had a 14.5mAh battery while the largest ring has a 21.5mAh battery.

In saying so, Samsung told us that the dimensions had already changed. So these figures might not be completely accurate come launch time.
