Samsung releases the Plus variant of the Galaxy SmartTag in the US
Samsung launched the Galaxy SmartTags alongside the S21 series. They are, as the name suggests, small devices that can be used to keep track of whatever they are attached to or placed in via wireless communication with their companion phones.
The OEM touts them as a powerful method of locating lost or stolen possessions in a secure and private way, although this does depend on having other compatible Samsung Galaxy-series devices. It released the standard variants shortly after their Unpacked event, although it held back on the SmartTags Plus.
Those SKUs were the ones to support ultra-wide-band (UWB) as well as Bluetooth, which means a user can find the objects to which they are attached through an AR app. Then again, the Plus versions are rated to get about 150 days out of their watch batteries, whereas the vanilla models might get twice that.
