Energy Ring app makes the Samsung Galaxy S10 camera ring battery meter concept a reality

A while ago, before the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10, we saw a concept which used the ring around the Samsung Galaxy S10’s front-facing camera to do all kinds of interesting things, including using it as a battery meter.

Samsung, in the end, did not implement this, but the great thing about Android is that often 3rd party developers can do it themselves.  In this case developer, IJP created Energy Ring, developed specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10E, which places a ring around the camera which corresponds to your battery level.

It features:

  • Energy Ring can be configured from a width of 1 pixel to a donut thick ring
  • Energy Ring puts almost 0% load on CPU, as it wakes up only to reflect any change in battery level
  • Energy Ring’s direction can be configured as clockwise/bidirectional/anti-clockwise
  • Energy Ring can hide on fullscreen content (apps, videos, images, games etc)
  • Energy Ring can be configured to change colors automatically depending on the live battery level
  • Energy Ring could have a mono color/multiple color segments/gradient (pro)
  • You can literally assign any color in the world for your favorite configuration
  • Energy Ring has a number of cool animations whenever a power source is plugged into your device

The app is free with in-app purchase for some features, and as of yet does not support the Samsung Galaxy S10+.
