NXP Semiconductors N.V. and ZTE Corp. have partnered to equip ZTE handsets with NXP's Near Field Communications (NFC) PN544 technology enabling secure transactions such as payment, transportation and physical access.

ZTE plans to merge NFC chips into its line of smartphones and feature phones, such as the Android-based QSC6270 platform devices as well as more entry-level feature phones. ZTE handsets with NFC shall be available in Q2 2011.

Currently, NFC and its associated secure element offers consumers a high level of convenience, interactivity and security with their mobile devices, and further enhances their smartphone experiences by linking the virtual world of applications with the physical environment. Using natural touch gestures, NFC devices can readily pair with accessories, interact on a peer-to-peer level to exchange data, as well as connect to a huge installed base of reader and tag infrastructures.
