Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2: UWB Tracking Coming Soon

Samsung Electronics makes the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag, a keyfinder and objectfinder. The device uses Bluetooth LE to enable users to find the object to which it is linked using the SmartThings mobile app. The gadget was unveiled on January 14, 2021, at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event. A little strap or other method, such as a keychain, can be used to secure the tracking device Galaxy SmartTag to a variety of easily lost items. After several years, the firm is all set to bring back the next version of the gadget, SmartTag 2.

The gadget was spotted on several certification websites, including the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), and now it has been discovered on the NBTC website. The SmartTag 2 is revealed to showcase ultra-wide-band (UWB) technology under the model number EI-T5600 in the NBTC certification listings. The features seem to have been improved in SmartTag+, which is an upgrade from the original SmartTag. A 3.0V power supply, an FPCB antenna, and a single channel are included as supportive features.

Further features, including the capability, will work with the Galaxy SmartTag 2’s Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity compatibility. The UWB was expected to be a significant feature, as it was not present in its predecessor. Ultra-wideband is a radio technology that uses a very low energy level for short-range, high-bandwidth communications over a significant portion of the radio spectrum. However, SmartTag+, which combines Bluetooth and UWB technology, was launched by the firm.

The release is expected around the first quarter of 2024, along with the next edition of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S24 series. We can expect an official announcement in the coming weeks about the additional specifications. With a series of button clicks, the new connection might enable more complex features, setting off pre-programmed sequences.
