Inside Secure has said it is integrating its near field communications (NFC) solutions into a next-generation smartphone from a leading mobile phone manufacturer.

The new smartphone, scheduled to be introduced by mid-year, will utilise the Inside MicroRead NFC controller chip and Open NFC protocol stack software to support a broad range of NFC applications.

According to the company, the Inside NFC implementation for the new smartphone features a rich set of NFC capabilities, which will make it possible for people to use their mobile phones to pay when they shop or take public transit, get useful information or call a taxi by tapping smart tags in posters, exchange virtual business cards, pair Bluetooth devices and Wi-Fi networks more quickly.

"We are very pleased to be providing this NFC implementation for this advanced smartphone," said Charles Walton, general manager and EVP for Inside Secure. "Being selected by this major handset maker highlights how our NFC solutions continue to build momentum and achieve strong positions as the NFC market moves into the mainstream."

Further details will be announced by mid-year when this new smartphone is planned to be introduced commercially.
