Not content to let the Samsung Galaxy Ring have all the attention at MWC 2024, Honor has announced it will launch its debut smart ring before the end of the year.

Speaking at the Barcelona tech expo, company CEO George Zhao indicated that it will launch a ring with a focus on health features and insights driven by AI.

"Internally, we have this kind of solution, now we are working on that part. So in the future, you can have the Honor ring,” Zhao told CNBC.

"This hardware capability will work together with AI-enabled apps and can help you make the professional training course tailored for you because they studied your habits and health data to give you professional suggestions."

There was very little detail offered other than the fact the Honor Ring exists, though Zhao did suggest the device will be released before the end of 2024.

When it does, it'll mean smart ring market leader Oura has another big name to worry about.

Samsung's Galaxy Ring looks set to launch later this summer alongside the Galaxy Watch 7 series, with startups Ultrahuman, RingConn, Circular, and Movano also in the Finnish company's rear-view mirror.

Amazfit - who announced the Helio smart ring at CES 2024 - is also getting involved, showing that the space is undergoing a seismic shift.

Talk of an Apple smart ring has even ramped up in recent weeks, with one report suggesting a launch is imminent - though Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and other insiders have since poured cold water on this notion.

Whatever the case, we're looking forward to hearing more details about the Honor Ring over the coming months, and we'll update this piece when we have official word or reputable rumors relating to the smart ring's price, features, or release date.
