OnePlus Tag in the Works, Spotted in Patent Filing; Could Launch Soon
After Samsung and Apple, OnePlus can be the next tech major to introduce smart tags. According to trademark filing on May 18, OnePlus has reportedly filed for the name “OnePlusTag”. However, this is the first indication of something like this underworks. On the other hand, the major brands are joining the tracking device bandwagon. Just last year- Samsung launched its Galaxy SmartTag in January. Now, Apple also launched its AirTag in March this year.
This OnePlus Tag rumors are coming after its spotting in a a list of OnePlus devices awaiting a patent. Moreover, its’ name makes its possible use from the other similar products. In addition, the company has already the moniker, suggesting that such a device could exist.
OnePlus Tag Might Be in the Works
After a spotting by Gizmochina, the listing on patent only lists the name and no other information. On the other hand, the company filed for a trademark for the moniker on May 18th, 2021 (through Beijing Intangible Technology). Just like other counterparts, it looks it is an item tracker that you can use to track your personal belongings such as keys, wallets, and bags.
OnePlus Tag could be similar to the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag and Apple AirTag. Unfortunately, the trademark listing does not reveal the specifications or launch date. Moreover, we have no confirmation whether it is under works or just trademarked the name for future purposes. There is no official confirmation by OnePlus at this time. But if it is in the works, then OnePlus will likely introduce a compatible app for the accessory along with OnePlus Tag.
For better understanding, tracking devices and flagship smartphones from Samsung and Apple feature Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. It goes hand in hand for accurate tracking. However, no device from OnePlus has support for UWB so far. If OnePlus wants to offer an object tracker as accurate as those from Samsung and Apple, it will have to bring UWB to its smartphones as well. If OnePlus does launch an item tracker without UWB support, we are not sure how useful will it be and if people would actually want to buy it.
