It definitely is a frustrating thing to go through losing small items such as keys. If a report is to be believed, Nokia’s Bluetooth “Treasure Tag” will make sure this never happens again. The tag is said to work with any Lumia smartphone such as the Lumia 925.

The report comes to Phones Limited from The Verge. According to the site, “Nokia is preparing to launch a proximity sensor accessory for its range of Lumia Windows Phones. Sources familiar with Nokia’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the Finnish smartphone maker will debut a “Treasure Tag” accessory that combines Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC to track items from a phone. The Treasure Tag will pair with Lumia Windows Phones via NFC, and Nokia will ship the device with a loop strap to attach it to a set of keys.”

It added, “Treasure Tag is designed to be “always on,” and includes a battery that will last for around six months of use. Nokia is updating its Lumia Windows Phones with Bluetooth 4.0 support, and the Treasure Tag will be one of the first accessories to make use of the new Low Energy support. We’re told that Treasure Tag will debut in the coming weeks, once Nokia starts to roll outs its Amber update that includes Bluetooth 4.0 support.”
