Samsung said that it plans to soon offer a new version of its TecTiles, or programmable NFC tags, that will be compatible with the company's newer smartphones. The first version of TecTiles that Samsung brought to market last year used an older protocol that preceded the finalized NFC specification. The effect is that newer devices, such as the Galaxy S 4, can not read those older tags. "TecTile 2 will use the current NFC technology on the market, allowing Samsung customers to further incorporate NFC into their daily lives," said Samsung in a statement provided to Phone Scoop. "As industry standards continue to evolve, Samsung remains committed to meeting those standards and adapting its technologies if necessary." The updated TecTiles 2 will be available in the coming weeks.
