Recently, Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Bluboo Mobile declares that their new Bluboo Picasso 4G will feature NFC support. The increased number of people using NFC for payments is probably the driving force behind the decision. Actually, NFC seems to be a must for a smartphone.

Short for Near Field Communication, NFC’s a set of close-range wireless communication standards. NFC-equipped smartphones and other devices can exchange information with each other with a simple tap or wave. And NFC is most commonly associated with the “mobile wallet”—the idea that your smartphone will replace your cash and credit cards. In just one tap or wave of your phone, you can pay for your groceries and redeem offers or coupons.

Except from mobile payments, there are a world of uses for NFC, for instance, paying for your parking meter, getting tickets or boarding passes(Some airlines and buses also support NFC paying for boarding passes), and opening doors(Some companies and universities could use NFC-enabled devices as security badges. To gain physical access somewhere, members need only tap their smartphones at the door.). One could also use NFC to download information. To tap or wave your smartphone, you could get more information.

We’ve know that Bluboo Picasso 4G would come with updated MTK 6735 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 5.0-inch OGS display, 8 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear camera with custom-made Sony sensor. Other features of the Bluboo Picasso 4G include NFC, Android 6.0 Marshmallow as OS and the exclusive Beauty camera app—Bluboo BeautySnap. In addition to the aforementioned upgraded features, Bluboo Picasso 4G retains the exquisite appearance of the previous version.
