The old wallet and auto keys are slowly becoming obsolete in our society as everything is managed by smartphones. The GV60 electric car was unveiled by Hyundai’s Genesis brand this week, and it can be started and unlocked using Samsung cellphones equipped with UWB.
This week, Hyundai revealed information about the Genesis GV60 EV, as our friends at Electrek reported. The short version: The new car has a starting price of $60K, about 250 miles of range, and a premium package overall. Three years of free charging are also included.
However, the automobiles support for UWB keys are something that might interest smartphone fans. Ultra-wideband, or UWB, is starting to gain popularity in the Android market on devices like the Pixel 6 Pro, but Samsung is the company that best supports the technology. One of the more intriguing applications for the feature is a digital automobile key, even though it may also be used for tracking tags and other things.
Samsung is now able to use that capability with the Genesis GV60. Within Samsung Pass, a Digital Key for the GV60 can be generated. When you are within range, the phone can then unlock your automobile and serve as authentication when it is time to start it. Along with remote starting, this feature enables you to temporarily give another user access to your car by sharing your key.
