Samsung has just announced the unveiling of a newly updated version of its NFC technology which is fully compatible with its Galaxy 4S device.

This will be a full replacement for the original TecTile tag that had previously been compatible with its smartphones.

The original TecTile tag was designed to add NFC technology options to capable smartphones in order to boost functionality through the programming of certain commands into the connection between the tag and the device. That version used non-standard tech, which has since been criticized in the majority of smartphones. However, the newer release of the device will use a new Forum tag format, which is expected to continue to be used throughout the mobile industry.

The TecTile 2 NFC technology tag has an all new design and read/write ability with the Galaxy S4.

Samsung will be making its launch of the TecTile 2 NFC technology programmable tags as an update over the originals within the next few weeks. It will use the latest accepted version of near field communications within the market, which will allow Samsung device users to be able to use it as a more everyday part of their lives. It will also be usable with the latest in Samsung Mobile services and products.

Throughout the evolution of the industry, Samsung has been displaying its commitment to both keep up and lead the way in continuing to adapt and meet the latest standards in NFC technology. Customers will also be able to use the TecTiles 2 with their existing enabled Samsung smartphones that are already on the market, so it won’t simply be compatible with the latest and upcoming releases.

Though NFC technology is not yet a well known product category in most countries, it is growing in its prevalence. It is receiving a considerable boost by the growing number of devices that are equipped with these chips, which run on BlackBerry 10, Android, and even Windows Phone. As a growing proportion of the population has the capability in their devices, it could be that its use will continue on a rapid growth.
