Back in July, it was revealed that Nokia had a new accessory that they would be debuting in the near future called the “Treasure Tag”. At that time all we had was a diagram of the device, but thanks to the ever-reliable @evleaks, a photo of the accessory has since been leaked. For those unfamiliar with the accessory, the Treasure Tag is essentially a Bluetooth/NFC tag that can be used to pair with a smartphone, such as a Nokia Lumia device for example. It will make use of Bluetooth 4.0 which will be supported in the Windows Phone GDR2 update and basically it acts as a homing beacon for object.
For example you could use the strap and attach the Treasure Tag to a bag, another smartphone, your wallet, your keys, and etc. and because it is paired with your smartphone, along with the accompanying app you will be able to locate your device in the event that it goes missing. It will be able to take advantage of Nokia’s LiveSight augmented reality view and will also be able to sound off an alert on the phone when it is within range. The Treasure Tag is expected to make its debut come this October.
