NFC Phones list, all available handsets

Complete list with all mobile phones with nfc chip

all smartphones with nfc chip worldwide in 1 list
The fast growing lists of all phones with nfc chip is just a bit further down.
First An explanation of what you can expect from the nfc applications at this time. What does it mean, an X in the table.

Tag reading/writing

1 – Home-made tags, program a sticker or key fob to automate your frequently used tasks. Buy Samsung TecTiles, Sony SmartTags, LG Tag+ or (cheaper) nonames. Nowadays, there is an app (in the store) for all phones. Different O.S, many different nfc apps and a not compatible tag-type… Other phones may have problems reading your stickers!
2 – Interact with a Smartposter, read the embedded tag in an object (for marketing purposes). Smartposters are still very rare. Don’t expect compatibility problems.
Visit the “NFC tag page” for (almost) everything about tags. A huge page with Links to the different sections.

Pairing and sharing

Pairing with nfc enabled headsets, speakers and .. ;
Very few “gadgets” with nfc pairing available. Compatibility seems to be disappointing, probably due to the failing connection handover? Better do a test before you buy. If nfc pairing fails you can make your bluetooth connection manually.
Share with another device;
For successful cross-platform use, the NFC forum released the SNEP Protocol for data exchange. Android 4.x, Blackberry, Meego, Windows phone 8 and Windows 8 do support the SNEP protocol.
What does work;

  • With 2 devices both using the same O.S. and nfc app, you can share (almost) everything;
    - S-Beam, Samsung’s proprietary wireless communication app using nfc and WiFi direct
    - Android Beam, on Android 4.1 or later, nfc with Bluetooth
    - Windows 8, Tap + Send app, nfc with Bluetooth
    - BlackBerry’s Tag app, nfc with Bluetooth (BlackBerry 7.1x and 10.x)
  • 2 Android 4.0 devices; Beam app doesn’t share photos, playlist and video
  • Android – BlackBerry; Videos show image and music sharing between Z10 and GS3 devices, in both directions.
  • Android – Windows 8 phone; Sharing web pages (URL) and contacts works fine without trouble in both directions.
  • Best Buy Co, Inc.
  • BlackBerry – Windows 8 phone; No feedback found.update; There are a number of known issues between BlackBerry 10 vs Nokia Lumia phones (BB 7.1 = ok).
    - Bluetooth Connection handover on the Lumia is not compliant with the NFC Forum specification.(says BB)
    - There’s an issue whereby the Lumia P2P server crashes when used with BlackBerry 10.(says BB)
    BlackBerry engineers say that the problem is with the Lumia devices. BlackBerry 10 P2P works fine with Android devices and other Nokia devices.

Small data exchange via nfc, between different O.S.’s, works because only the SNEP protocol is used for the entire data transfer. BlackBerry says the limit is approximately 8K, we talk about an URL or contact info.
What doesn’t work;
Bigger data, transfering photos or video, to a device with another operating system.
This is done in 2 stages. File transfer is only initiated via NFC, then the devices handover the connection to Bluetooth to transfer the data. The content of the NDEF Message received over SNEP must include details to make a Bluetooth connection to the other device and start the transfer.
For one reason or another, this doesn’t work between different operating systems. Unfortunately the “connection handover” fails when we tap our handset to another device with a different O.S.
The NFC-Forum released an application document for implementation of Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing using NFC but developers and manufacturers are not obliged to apply NFC-Forum protocol specifications.


An X in the table means that the device is approved by Visa and/or Mastercard for their contactless application OR the phone already participates a mobile wallet with contactless payments somewhere. Approved is NO guarantee at all.
Approvals can be worldwide, often just for one carrier. For details about supported Secure Element, wallet and market, see the lists with certified phones.

Japan; Most phones with nfc are “hybrid phones”. Enabled for standard NFC and FeliCa. Information on this page applies only to standard NFC. All nfc phones in Japan  seems to use Sony NFC controller chips, probably don’t support mifare classic tags.

read write peer to peer emulation mode for NFC Phones and other devices

Peer to Peer; Pair, make the initial “handshake” between your handset and bluetooth devices such as headphones and speakers. Share, transfer music, photos, or videos between NFC enabled devices. The trend is pre-installed NFC apps, NFC tricks working out of the box. Cross-platform sharing is very limited.

Reader / Writer mode; This is about TAGs. Tags contain data and are typically read-only but may be rewriteable. A smartposter is an interactive hotspot for more information and content.

NFC card Emulation; needed for contactless Payments. The Phone has an embedded secure element or has the SWP aboard to support SIM-based secure element. To participate a mobile wallet, compatible hard- and software is not enough. It also depends on business decisions.
Figure about technology architecture: nfc-forum.org

Tap to pay, still far away?

Tap to pay with nfc enabled handsets and cards Mastercard Paypass ready contactless payments with nfc chip Google Wallet accepted here
A complete and up to date list with nfc payment projects would be a full-time job. Very much is happening around the world.
“NFC payments will account for 42% of all mobile payments made in Europe in 2015, according to Frost & Sullivan”
I want to leave aside such predictions about the use.
Facts are;
1 – more and more debit/credit cards, mobile phones and other devices come with an NFC chip inside. In a few years we have Billions of nfc enabled phones and other devices, not only high-end handsets.
2 – On the other side, more and more places accept contactless payments, but the growth is not spectacular here.
3 – Without your carrier, bank and/or … for developing, allow and support a mobile wallet, the hardware is of no use.

Good chance you already have an NFC enabled credit card. Try to make your first contactless payment where you see a PayWave or PayPass symbol. For small amounts no pin needed. Tapping with a card is not far away for most of us.

Paying with a tap of a phone, Is available in very few places currently. Readying phones, retailers, public transport and expanding to other markets are still giant steps for mankind! For most of us, with or without nfc enabled phone, this is not available in 2014. Maybe you are one of the happy few ;-).
