News that Sprint is working on its own NFC-based mobile wallet app started to surface last week. But as far as the rumor is concerned, the carrier hasn’t really confirmed it. However, today, Android Central is reporting that a Sprint insider has given them a couple of leaked presentation slides highlighting how Sprint’s Touch Wallet works. Based on the slides, it appears that the participating partners will include McDonald’s, Barnes & Noble, Target, and Best Buy, although the publication warned that the aforementioned brands could be used only as examples in the slides.
One slide reveals how Sprint’s Touch Wallet could work. First, users will have to enter a passcode in the app. Then, if the passcode is correct, a short animation will show the wallet unlocking. The main screen will then be opened showing a screen of options. If the phone is tapped, the card screen will be presented with your credit cards on it. There, as Android Central pointed out, users will be ready make purchases. Again, the two slides do not guarantee the veracity of Sprint’s Touch Wallet and how it actually works. We can only wonder for now. Stay tuned as we bring you more updates.
