New Galaxy Smart Tag leak spills beans on object tracker’s design, features
It is no secret that Samsung has been working on a Tile-like smart object tracker. The company’s upcoming device could be launched as soon as next month, and its colors, features, and pricing have been leaked already. A new leak has now surfaced, and it shows a clearer design of the Galaxy Smart Tag.
A tutorial GIF extracted from the recently released version of the SmartThings Find app shows the Galaxy Smart Tag in two colors: Black and White (Oatmeal). The rounded square-shaped device has a circular button in the middle and a lanyard hole towards the corner. The button can be pressed to find a connected smartphone, while the onboard buzzer can be activated from the smartphone to find the object tracker and the object that it’s attached to.
The Galaxy Smart Tag features Bluetooth 5.1 (with LE) and is compatible with SmartThings Find. It is rumored to be priced at just €15 and is powered by a replaceable 3V CR2032 coin cell. Many had hoped that it would feature GPS or UWB. However, it doesn’t look like Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Smart Tag with those features, which could be due to battery or price constraints. Even Apple is working on a similar device.
