What is NFC and How Does it Work?
NFC stands for Near Field Communication. Its working principle is similar to other forms of wireless communication or signals such as WIFI and Bluetooth that are capable of transferring and receiving information over radio waves just that, NFC operates within a short range than them.

Two devices with NFC must be within 10cm or 4-inches of each other for them to connect and be able to send and receive information/data.

All Samsung flagship phones from the Galaxy S3 to their latest flagships; Samsung S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra support NFC. All Samsung Note from the Note II to the Note 20 Ultra, also supports this technology.

Most of Samsung’s mid-range phones on the A series that was launched in 2022 also come with this feature and it works well on them too.

Do all Samsung phones have NFC? No, but many of them do, especially if you are buying a flagship or mid-range phone announced and made available in 2020 upward.

Final Thought

To turn on NFC on your Samsung phone, just go to settings and tap on connections. Then, tap on NFC and contactless payments and tap on the toggle to turn it on and off.
