Samsung, back in 2021, launched its first Bluetooth-enabled object tracker – the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag. It’s been more than two years since the launch of the Galaxy SmartTag and the Korean Tech giant now appears to be prepping up for its successor’s launch. We have spotted the upcoming Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 on the NBTC certification website.
A couple of weeks ago, the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 was spotted on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) database revealing its design and key specifications. The upcoming object tracker from Samsung was also spotted on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) certification website a couple of months ago. Let us take a closer look at the details.
The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 made an appearance on the NBTC certification website with the model number EI-T5600. The listing also reveals that the upcoming object tracker will make use of ultra-wide-band (UWB) technology. Previous listings have confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 will rely on Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
The first generation Samsung Galaxy SmartTag featured support for Bluetooth connectivity and lacked UWB connectivity. However, Samsung launched an enhanced version of it, called – Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ which supported Bluetooth as well as UWB technology.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2’s FCC certification listing revealed that it will support a 3.0V power supply, FPCB antenna, and single channel. Apart from this, there is nothing known about the Galaxy SmartTag 2 specifications as of now. However, we can expect it to appear on other certification websites in the coming weeks.
It’s not clear when the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag 2 will be released but we can expect it to be launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy S24 series in upcoming Unpacked in early 2024.
