Samsung is preparing to launch the Galaxy SmarTag 2 device

In the year 2021, Samsung not only unveiled its annual flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21 series but also introduced the location-tracking devices Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+. Recent certification documents suggest that Samsung is poised to launch the next-generation location-tracking device, the Galaxy SmartTag 2, imbued with Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity technology.

Documentation from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group reveals that the new iteration of Samsung’s location-tracking device will be christened the Galaxy SmartTag 2, with the model number EI—T5600, and will incorporate Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity. This advancement implies an operation characterized by reduced power consumption and enhanced resistance to interference, while also ensuring the stability and security of the connection.

At present, the precise aesthetics of the Galaxy SmartTag 2 remain elusive, although it is conceivable that it will retain the design language of the Galaxy SmartTag, potentially incorporating a built-in button feature. This allows users to perform customized operations through settings or use it to trace their phones in reverse.

In addition to launching the Galaxy SmartTag 2, it is anticipated that Samsung will offer an upgraded version, the plus version, equipped with an additional Ultra-Wideband (UWB) connectivity feature, the details of which are yet to be confirmed.

Samsung has recently confirmed that it will be hosting an Unpacked launch event in Seoul, South Korea, at the end of July this year. It is expected to announce the much-rumored Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5, as well as the new Galaxy Watch6 series of smartwatches. It is probable that the Galaxy SmartTag2 will make its debut at this event.
