The Galaxy Ring is among the most exciting devices Samsung will officially launch next week at Unpacked 2024. It’s the first smart ring developed by the Korean tech giant, and Samsung showcased its design and color options at the Mobile World Congress event earlier this year.

We know what the Galaxy Ring looks like, but Samsung has yet to reveal how much it will cost. New information about the Galaxy Ring’s alleged price has now surfaced, and unfortunately, it might put a dampener on your excitement.

Galaxy Ring may cost more than most Galaxy Watches

French portal Dealabs (via WinFuture) may have gained pricing information about Samsung’s first smart ring. It claims that the Galaxy Ring will go on sale in France for €449. Whether this price is exact or slightly inflated by third-party retailer sources is unclear.

For a point of reference with other Samsung wearables, the most expensive Galaxy Watch at launch was the Watch 5 Pro, which went on sale in 2022 for €449 (Wi-Fi) and €499 (LTE). However, other Galaxy Watch models cost less. But rumors have it that the upcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra may beat all of them with an eye-watering price tag of €700.

The publication confirms that the Galaxy Ring will be available in France in three color options — black, silver, and gold — and nine sizes — 5 through 13 on the US standard. A previous leak revealed how Samsung might help prospective buyers pick the right Galaxy Ring size.

Interestingly, another report that surfaced in May suggested that larger Rings will have beefier batteries, which means people with larger fingers might get more battery life from the Galaxy Ring on a single charge.

No new information on a possible subscription model

The Galaxy Ring will be available in France from July 19, says the source, even though it will be unveiled on July 10. Whether this means Samsung will open a 9-day pre-order window or if pre-orders start on July 19 is to be determined. We’re guessing it might be the former.

The story continues after our Galaxy Ring video from MWC24…

Pricing and availability might vary slightly in other markets. But if the Galaxy Ring goes on sale in France for €449 on July 19, we imagine things won’t be too different elsewhere, across Europe.

There’s no word of a subscription yet, but as WinFuture reminds readers, Samsung may intend to link the Galaxy Ring to a subscription of sorts. Through it, Samsung could offer access to more advanced AI-based features. But whether the cost of such a subscription is included in the rumored €449 price is unknown.

Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy Ring on July 10 at Unpacked 2024 in Paris. Prospective buyers can now reserve the next-gen Galaxy devices for a chance to earn $50 in Samsung Credit and enter a $5,000 sweepstakes (in select markets).
