HTC One to come with NFC


HTC has unveiled a new flagship smartphone, the HTC One, which features a full aluminium body, a 4.7-inch full HD screen, LTE and NFC and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The new device includes a new antenna design concept that allows the antenna to be integrated into the metal back of the phone.

An official HTC One video shows off the new phone’s design:

“Although smartphones are one of the main ways we stay in touch with the people and information we care about, conventional designs have failed to keep pace with how people are actually using them,” says Peter Chou, HTC’s CEO. “A new, exciting approach to the smartphone is needed and with the new HTC One, we have re-imagined the mobile experience from the ground up to reflect this new reality.”

The HTC One will be available globally through more than 185 mobile operators and major retailers beginning in March.

  1. Could someone please explain how the HTC one uses NFC? I always thought an all aluminium body would block NFC from working and that is why iPhone does not have it.
    So how did HTC manage this on the ONE?
