According to media reports, Samsung is developing a ‘Galaxy Ring’ for health tracking and augmented reality (AR)-powered ‘Galaxy Glasses’.

According to GizmoChina, the tech giant has filed two new trademark applications, one for a Galaxy Ring and the other for a pair of Galaxy Glasses.

The upcoming glasses could be similar to the rumored Apple augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) headset.

Last week, the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) granted the company the Galaxy Ring trademark.

The Galaxy Ring is classified as a “smart device for measuring health indicators and/or sleep in the form of [a] ring” by the Galaxy Ring classifications.

Other than the name, the KIPRIS application revealed no other information about the upcoming device.

According to the report, the Galaxy Ring will likely monitor the wearer’s health and physical activities in the same way that a smartwatch does.

At the Unpacked event on February 1, the tech giant announced a partnership with Qualcomm and Google to build an ecosystem for XR.

“It will take time to introduce new products, but we will make progress and provide you with new updates,” T.M. Roh, President of Samsung Electronics’ Mobile eXperience business, said at the event, adding that developing a new ecosystem requires collaboration with strong partners.
