Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S21 series in mid-January. In the past few days, the three smartphones in the series have leaked more often in the form of rendering, certification, and benchmark testing.
According to reports, these phones are also equipped with Galaxy Buds Pro. Now, based on the newly discovered certification, another product can be launched in the same event.
Earlier today, Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings), a well-known Indian technology influencer, said on Twitter that the product named “Galaxy Smart Tag” has been certified by the Indonesian Telecommunications Agency and the model is EI-T5300.

As the name suggests, we can certainly assume that the product is some kind of tracker. In any case, this will not be Samsung’s first tracker. As the company has already released a similar LTE-based product “SmartThings Tracker” as early as September 2018.
Two years ago, at the Galaxy Note20 series conference, the technology giant also launched an application called “SmartThings Find” to locate Samsung products using Bluetooth and UWB.
In other words, based on the time of the Galaxy Smart Tag certification, we can speculate that it will be announced in the Galaxy S21 series of events like the Galaxy Buds Pro.
Since Samsung’s future flagship smartphones are now expected to have UWB like the iPhone, the upcoming smartphones may also support UWB. Currently, Tile is the market leader in the tracker category. But this may change soon, because in addition to Samsung, Apple has reportedly launched its own tracker “AirTags”.
Both technology giants have the opportunity to occupy this niche market, thanks to their ecosystems.
