Back in January of this year, Samsung announced the release of its Tile competitor known as the Galaxy SmartTag, a Bluetooth-powered locator. At the same time, it teased that an ultra-wideband (UWB) powered version called the Galaxy SmartTag+ would arrive sometime later in the year, without giving a specific time frame. Well, that time is now. The newly introduced iteration will offer support for both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and UWB and can be attached to the everyday items that users want to keep track of — like backpacks or keychains, for example. As with Apple’s newly released AirTags, the SmartTag+ for Samsung device owners offers more precise finding capabilities because of its use of UWB technology. The SmartTag+ also uses augmented reality (AR) technology to visually guide users toward the location of a missing item via their smartphone’s camera.

Unable to find your backpack? The AR Finder guides you with an easy-to-follow interface on your UWB-equipped smartphone, such as Galaxy S21+ or S21 Ultra, which shows you how far away you are from your Galaxy SmartTag+ and points you in its direction. And once you are closer to the tag’s location, you can choose to have it produce a loud ring so that even if it is on the floor of a closet, you will have no trouble finding it. Because the new beacons rely on UWB, Samsung says they will only work with Galaxy devices that include UWB technology, including the Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold2.
