- Samsung Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag+ are the upcoming tracking devices from the brand
- These tracking devices are heavily rumoured to launch on January 14th
- Samsung Galaxy SmartTag features will include Privacy ID, end-to-end encrypted location, and seamless pairing with in-house devices
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag+, two smart tracking devices from the South Korean company, will be launched alongside Galaxy S21 series at Samsung’s Unpacked event 2021 on January 14th. Details about the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag have already been doing the rounds of the rumour mill. Now, Ishan Agarwal, who is a reliable source for tech leaks, has confirmed that there will be another variant of the upcoming smart tracking device, dubbed as Galaxy SmartTag+, as well. The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag will bear model number EI-T5300, while the SmartTag+ will come with EI-T7300 model number. Agarwal also shared the key Galaxy SmartTag features with 91mobiles. The tracker is said to automatically connect to all your Galaxy devices. You will be able to ring the phone by pressing the button twice and share the location with family and friends.
The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag will also be end-to-end encrypted and feature ‘Privacy ID’ for security. As for the dimensions, Agarwal confirms, the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag will measure 4cmx4cmx1cm and weigh 13 grams. Both the trackers are said to come in Black, Oatmeal, Denim Blue, and Mint colour options. The trackers will come in packs of two and four.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ features remain unknown at the moment, but we’re expecting them to be similar to the regular SmartTag, with some additional benefits of course. The tracking devices could tout the exact same design as spotted on the NCC listing earlier this month. The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag is likely to flaunt a squarish form factor and a lanyard-shaped hole for a cord or strap. Samsung Galaxy SmartTag price, as confirmed by 91mobiles previously, could be around EUR 15 (about Rs 1,350) in Europe. That’s all the information we can divulge at the moment!
Talking about Samsung’s Unpacked event 2021, it’ll begin at 8:30 PM IST on January 14th. The highlight of the event will be the upcoming Galaxy S21 series, which is likely to include three models – much like last year. The base model Samsung Galaxy S21’s specifications may include Exynos 2100/ Snapdragon 888 SoC, 6.2-inch display, 120Hz refresh rate, and triple rear cameras with 64MP telephoto lens. This will be followed by Samsung Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra, which will have slightly bigger displays and better cameras.
