Leaked document reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will support NFC connectivity?
It appears that Xiaomi is giving NFC another shot. A document released by China UnionPay lists 32 phones that will offer its "Cloud Lightening Pay" (translated) mobile payment service. The feature requires that those 32 handsets support NFC. Among the phones on the list is the Xiaomi Mi 5. This would appear to be a pretty good sign that NFC is coming back to Xiaomi on its new flagship phone.
If China UnionPay sounds familiar, that is because we have written about the bank before. It happens to be the lone financial institution in China to handle interbank payments, and its reluctance to sign off on Apple Pay is one of the big reasons why Apple cannot get its mobile payment service launched in the country.
Besides NFC support, we should see the Mi 5 come to market clad in metal, and equipped with a fingerprint scanner embedded inside a home button.
Thanks for the tip!
