Samsung has all but confirmed that it will launch its inaugural Galaxy Ring to go with the Galaxy Z Flip6, Fold6, Watch7 and/or Watch Ultra later in 2024. Now, the wearable has popped up in what seems to be a new hands-on leak, which also seems to purport to show how a user goes about charging the new accessory.

The latest Ice Universe Samsung leak spree that purports to uncover the OEM's apparently unapologetic bid to kill the Apple Watch Ultra has also targeted the OEM's upcoming Oura Ring rival and some of its few remaining secrets.

In keeping with its name, the inaugural Galaxy Ring will allegedly come in a box, except of course that it will also act as its charger.

According to the famous leaker's new photo, it will be found within a raised round platform within the container, with an orange accent to match one on the edge of the ring itself so as to act as a charging contact guide.

There will also be a large hollow insert in the top of the box to help keep the ring (shown in silver, although a gold-colored alternative might also be a possibility) in place. The cradle is shown from the front at an angle that confirms it as a Samsung product thanks to the logo on its front.

However, according to its FCC filing, the wearable's box should have a USB port to the rear. The Galaxy Ring is projected to come in up to 9 size SKUs, each of which might also require its own version of the cradle to match.
