Samsung registers Galaxy Ring and Galaxy Glasses, competitors of Apple Glass
Samsung has registered two product names with the South Korean authorities. The two accessories are called the Galaxy Ring and the Galaxy Glasses. Will these be released before Apple Glass, whose presentation is scheduled for June 2023?
If, during the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 6, 2023, the eyes were logically fixed on the Galaxy S23, Tae Moon Roh, the director of Samsung Mobile in person, makes an announcement, no less important for the future of the company . Google, Qualcomm and Samsung have teamed up to develop an ‘extended reality device’, the formalization of which would not be “too far away”. Therefore, the registration of the Galaxy Glasses seems to indicate that Samsung is preparing to beat Apple on the post in the field of VR headsets. Indeed, the apple firm must present its Apple Glass in June 2023.
The rumor of a smart ring branded Samsung has been running since 2015. The patent application filed at the time concerned a ring that can be used as a universal remote control. She was supposed to be able control all devices in the home without using a phone portable. The 2023 version of this invention seems to have evolved a lot.
Samsung will launch Galaxy Glasses and compete with Apple Glass
According to the classification of the South Korean equivalent of our INPI, the Galaxy Ring is a “device used to measure health indicators and/or sleep in the form of a ring”. No further information is available on it, but it is definitely a product to watch out for if you are interested in the health and fitness features it might offer.
The Galaxy Glasses are just as mysterious. It’s a safe bet that this accessory is the one designed in collaboration with Qualcomm and Google. Will it be a mixed reality (virtual and augmented) headset like Meta’s Quest Pro or a pair of AR glasses like the Apple Glass? All that is known about Galaxy Glasses based on trademark is that they fall into categories as diverse as “smart glasses, smartphone, headphones, headset for virtual or augmented reality experience “.
