- The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag2 could be introduced alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5 next month.
- The Galaxy Smart Tag2 will be a successor to the Galaxy SmartTag+.
- The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag2 will have a Bluetooth v5.3 support.
Samsung introduced its first object tracker, the Galaxy SmartTag alongside the Galaxy S21 series back in 2021. Later in April 2021, the South-Korean smartphone maker also unveiled the Galaxy SmartTag+ with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. Now, it appears that the first-generation Galaxy SmartTag would be getting a successor soon. The reason for this is that we at MySmartPrice have now spotted the Galaxy SmartTag2 on the Bluetooth SIG certification website. While the launch date of this upcoming object tracker remains unknown, we can expect it to debut at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event which is set to take place by the end of July.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 Receives Bluetooth SIG Certification
The Bluetooth SIG certification has listed the Galaxy SmartTag2 with model number EI-T5600. The certification confirms the moniker as the Galaxy SmartTag2. Furthermore, it also mentions that this upcoming SmartTag2 will have Bluetooth v5.3 support. Currently, the specifications and other details of this upcoming object tracker remain unknown. Additionally, the launch date details of the Galaxy Smart Tag2 remain under wrap. However, considering that Samsung is introducing the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Buds 3, and the Galaxy Tab S9 series at next month’s event, we also might see the launch of the SmartTag2 at the same event.
As mentioned above, Samsung first introduced the Galaxy SmartTag back in 2021. The Galaxy SmartTag is part of Samsung’s SmartThings ecosystem and it comes in two variants. One of the variants has Bluetooth LE 5.0 support which works with any Galaxy device, whereas the other is UWB (Ultra wide band) model which works with the S21+ and the S21 Ultra. The Galaxy SmartTag can be attached to any object you want to track. It comes with a replaceable CR2032 button battery and is priced at $29.99 (roughly Rs 2,460).
The SmartTag+ which was introduced a few months after the launch of the Galaxy SmartTag combines both BLE and UWB technology into one. It features a single button which users can press once or hold to perform custom functions through the SmartThings app. It is priced at $39.99 (roughly Rs 3,280).
