    Galaxy SmartTag+ with UWB goes on pre-order in the US

    Samsung had unveiled two new object trackers—Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+—earlier this year alongside the Galaxy S21 series. While the Galaxy SmartTag went on sale almost immediately, Samsung had announced that the Galaxy SmartTag+ would go on sale later this year. It appears that the more premium object tracker from the company will soon be available for purchase.

    The Galaxy SmartTag+ is now available for pre-order in the US. Best Buy has started accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy SmartTag+, and has mentioned that the device will start shipping on April 12. The device is priced at $39.99 in the US and will be available in two colors: Black and Denim Blue. According to reports, the Galaxy SmartTag+ received the FCC certification earlier today.

    The Galaxy SmartTag+ is $15 costlier than the regular Galaxy SmartTag, but it comes with UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) that offers more precise location and direction information. It features Bluetooth 5.0 and a tracking range of close to 400 feet. When it is out of range, the Galaxy SmartTag+ can still be tracked via other Galaxy users' devices using the Galaxy Find network. It has an IP53 rating for dust and water resistance and a ringer. Its replaceable battery lasts up to 5 months.

    Samsung has a few other neat options for the Galaxy SmartTag+ in the SmartThings app. You can see the object tracker's location in the AR (Augmented Reality) mode, configure its button for smart home controls or routines, adjust the ringer's volume, and change the ringtone (8 presets available).
