Samsung is getting ready to launch its new tracking device, the Galaxy SmartTag 2, which could be out in October.
The Galaxy SmartTag 2 is a gadget that will help you find your things like keys, bags, wallets, and more. It uses Bluetooth and Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology to communicate with your phone.
It works with Samsung’s SmartThings Find app, allowing you to show where your tag is on a map and letting you make it ring if it’s close so you’ll know its exact location.

How We Knew About the SmartTag 2
The Galaxy SmartTag 2 was first seen in June when it got a Bluetooth certification. It was then spotted again in August when it went through the FCC, showing some of its features and design.
The Galaxy SmartTag 2 will have Bluetooth 5.3, which is better than the Bluetooth 5.1 used by the first SmartTag. It will also have UWB connectivity, which gives more accurate and precise tracking than Bluetooth alone. UWB was only on the pricier SmartTag+ model before.
The Galaxy SmartTag 2 will look different from the previous models. It will be oval-shaped, with smooth edges and a big hole at the top. It will also be a bit bigger than an Apple AirTag. It will come in black and white colours.
The Galaxy SmartTag 2 will have new features that make it more handy and safe. For example, an augmented reality mode that helps you find your tag using your phone’s camera.
It also has anti-stalking measures that warn you if someone else’s tag is following you. It will also have a louder speaker that makes it easier to hear. And it will work with the SmartThings app, letting you control smart home devices with the tag’s button.
