As the days build up to Nokia's rumored September 27th event in New York, the big picture is becoming clear. The Nokia Lumia 1520 has been thoroughly revealed, GDR3 and Nokia's Bittersweet Shimmer have also been exposed to the public, and preceding all of this was talk of a number of new accessories. One of them was the Treasure Tag, and today we noticed that the upcoming NFC accessory has just passed through the FCC. Unfortunately, the only new things we spotted in the FCC filing was the model number (WS-2) and the diagrams you see above — photos are still under wraps according to the documents.
For those who missed it, the Treasure Tag was described in a report from July as a NFC device that pairs to a phone and then can be attached to something. In the event that you lost the item the Treasure Tag was attached to, you could use the phone to track the location of the item. If the reverse occurs and you lost your phone, the Treasure Tag could be used to find your phone by tapping the button along the top which emits a sound from the handset. It's reportedly the first of several Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy accessories coming soon for Lumia devices. Odds are looking strong that we'll see this particular accessory unveiled later this month.
