Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag details, expected price, and colour variants have surfaced online ahead of its expected launch. The Galaxy Smart Tag will be powered by a single, replaceable 3V CR2032 button cell, as per a report. The tracker, carrying model number EI-T5300, can be attached to any object such as wallet or keys, and help users in locating their lost Galaxy devices. Details about the Galaxy Smart Tag were revealed through a certification website that shows that the tracker has a rounded-square shape and a lanyard-shaped hole for a cord or strap.
Citing tipster Ishan Agarwal, a report by 91mobiles stated that Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag will be priced at EUR 15 (roughly Rs. 1,300). The tracker will be launched by Samsung in Black and White colour options, as per the tipster. However, the South Korean certification authority's database notes that the Galaxy Smart Tag will be available in Black and Oatmeal colour options.
It also shows that the Galaxy Smart Tag has a button that can be pressed to find a connected phone. There seems to be an onboard buzzer that can help users find the tracker.
Carrying model number El-T5300, the tracker has been certified as Bluetooth LE, as spotted by GSMArena. It is certified to support Bluetooth 5.1. The Galaxy Smart Tag was spotted on an Indonesian Telecom Certification website a few weeks ago. The tracker will likely be compatible with Samsung's SmartThings Find feature.
Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag is expected to be launched alongside the much-anticipated Galaxy S21 series in January 2021. The Galaxy Smart Tag is meant to offer similar functionality as the Tile tracker that has small tags that can be placed anywhere or attached to things to know where that particular item is.
