LTE version of Galaxy S4 Mini to come with NFC

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

A new compact version of Samsung’s latest flagship handset will come with NFC on LTE models, but the 3G versions destined for some markets will miss out on contactless technology.

All variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini have Bluetooth 4.0, but the spec sheet makes no mention of the Mobeam barcode technology that is included in the Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S4 Mini has a 4.3-inch 960 by 540 pixel touchscreen and will be available in black and white when it arrives at retail in June.
