HTC NFC-enabled smartphone out in Q3 2011?

HTC smartphones rumoured to get NFC tech this year

The word on the tech street is that HTC may launch an NFC-enabled smartphone in Q3 2011.

At a recent press event, an anonymous HTC sales manager reportedly told BrightSideofNews that the phone will be positioned slightly above the HTC Sensation and will be released in the third quarter of this year.

The rumoured smartphone is also said to have a 4.3-inch touchscreen.

This matches what HTC CEO, Peter Chou, said a while back about NFC technology arriving in future HTC phones.

"Mobile payments - wirelessly and securely from devices like smartphone- would be definitely the trend of the future and we'll be supporting that," said Chou last year.

Will Blighty be seeing NFC-enabled HTC smartphones this year? HTC has not officially commented on these rumours. Watch this space.
