2022 List of NFC Smartphones

The Latest NFC Phones 2022


NFC spent a while in the vaporware corner, but as NFC smartphones are becoming more ubiquitous while banks and stores are increasingly accepting phones as electronic wallets, the technology is quite rapidly becoming a standard.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a Bluetooth-like technology that creates a secure two-way connection between devices. It uses your SIM card as the Secure Element that can hold apps such as payment cards, making your NFC profiles unique to your phone as well. NFC runs on lower frequencies than Bluetooth, but consequently takes less time to setup, likely making it more secure. Plus, it does not require device paring beforehand. This list is dominated by Android-run smartphones, but Nokia was the first to market the technology in phones and an early adopter on its Windows smartphones. It includes Sony Xperias and LG models too, among others -- many of which include Miracast in the mix as well.

All smartphones listed here are models that have NFC built-in and ready to use.

    NFC smartphones have many applications outside electronic payments. NFC tags, these little chips that sell for almost nothing online, are a good example. Hide one in your doorway and program your phone to raise the volume when you just lightly brush it. Put another one in your bedroom to send a good night text message to your lover before going to bed and another one to launch your daily news in the morning.

    NFC can also help facilitate Bluetooth pairing or make certain mobile games more fun... and who knows what other innovations NFC will bring next? To keep current on smartphone innovations, check out our Latest smartphone discovery gallery.
