  • Increased Range - The current NFC doesn't have much range, now the firm wants to further expand the operating range of NFC tech to 4x to 6x its 5mm limit. If done successfully, the brand says it will improve user experience such as faster and seamless contactless transactions, and reduce the need for accurate antenna alignment.
  • Multiple Purpose Tap - This feature has the goal to improve the contactless user experience by allowing several actions in a single tap. The idea will improve ease and efficiency in areas ranging from point-to-point receipt distribution to loyalty identification and complete journey ticketing.
  • Modernizing Device-to-Device Communication - The company is developing to improve NFC-enable handsets with the Point-of-Sale feature (SoftPOS). This technology will let businesses and individuals accept payments anywhere, widening the reach of the said technology.
  • Expanding NFC's Data Sharing Capabilities for Sustainability - The firm wants to meet the growing consumer demands and regulatory requirements, thus they want NFC to transfer data on product composition and recycling options. This development will help to improve the circulatory economy and support sustainability goals.
