Back in January 2021, we had reported that Oppo was working on its own Bluetooth Smart Tag device. Now, the design of this smart tag has been revealed in patent images prior to its official launch.
The Smart Tag from the Chinese tech giant will be functionally similar to the Galaxy SmartTag from Samsung, which was announced along with the Galaxy S21 series. So, it was also assumed at the time that we might see Oppo’s iteration of this device being launched alongside the Find X3 series. Now, the Smart Tag from the company has been spotted in a recent patent filing with China’s CNIPA, as per a 91Mobiles report. The patent carries a number of images that are a bit different from the ones spotted earlier this year.
The Oppo Smart Tag appears to be flatter than and a bit larger than before. It features a rectangular design with rounded edges. In the middle, a circular design with the smartphone maker’s branding can be observed. Notably, the patent does not reveal any seam or hole that will allow one to attach the device to a personal item. For those unaware, smart tags are essentially small Bluetooth enabled devices that help locate certain items and objects, which they are attached to.
In other words, it helps find items like keys or a bag if they are lost but still connected to your smartphone. Unfortunately, it is unclear if this is the final design the company would opt for. So, we will have to wait for the official announcement, which will arrive when the Find X3 series launches on the 11th of March 2021. So stay tuned.
