Samsung has explained the process in detail how the whole technology will work. As per Samsung, at first, your device will make a precise distance calculation. Next, its UWB-enabled digital key sends short pulses between the smartphone and the paired car. By the process, you can unlock your car door once you reach it. Additionally, the S21 device has the support for NFC by which it can be used in some other ways similar to a digital key, but those are not that precise.

Now, an important note: Only the Galaxy S21+, S21 Ultra, and Galaxy Note 20 support the UWB technology. The Galaxy S21 does not have that technology. But, you can still use it for some other purposes of a car-key via NFC technology. However, Samsung is currently working on its UWB and digital key technology to ake them useful across several other smartphone brands. So, in the future, we might see smartphones from other manufacturers to possess this car door opening technology.
