Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ comes with UWB (Ultra Wide Band) support and AR visual guide. In February, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S21 series as well as Galaxy SmartTag devices. Galaxy SmartTag is more affordable than SmartTag+. SmartTag+ has the same basic design as the regular Galaxy Tag, but there are only two color options, black and gray.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ Specs and Price
The added UWB chip allows users to find SmartTag+ more accurately than Bluetooth. With the Augmented Reality visual guide, you can use the camera to find SmartTag+. The device can use both UWB and Bluetooth to be found with the AR visual guide. The range is still 120 meters and there is also an IP53 water and dust resistance certificate.
To use the device, you need Samsung Galaxy phones with UWB technology. These are Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra. You also need to use Samsung’s SmartThings app to improve and control SmartTag. SmartTag+ consumes more power than the previous model. The biggest factor in consuming more power is the UWB chip used. That’s why smarttag+ battery life has been reduced to 150 days instead of 300 days. SmartTag+ uses a standard CR2032 battery for easy replacement.
Smart Tag+ has a price tag of $40 and will be available from April 16.
