Sources of The Verge confirmed the Treasure Tag accessory plans, which is said will ship with a loop strap for attaching it to a set of keys. By using an app on the Windows Phone device, the Treasure Tag can be located on a map or through a Nokia LiveSight augmented view. When close enough, the tag can be set to make a sound via the app.

The tag is said to be the first to use the Lumia's Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy support, available as part of the incoming Amber update, and will help the device achieve its six-month always-on battery life.

Though it is believed that Nokia will be creating other similar devices, it is not clear exactly when the Treasure Tag will be released, nor its cost at launch.
