So, there are rumors going around that the upcoming iPhone 5S will feature NFC support to keep up with the times, which is old hat actually when you think about it since most of the high end Android smartphones already come with NFC connectivity built-in. The thing is, the latest rumor to make its rounds would concern the yet unreleased Samsung Galaxy S4, which appears to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Galaxy S3, where a leaked image of the Galaxy S4’s battery was shown to carry a rating of 2,600mAh alongside the Near Field Communication (NFC) label on the battery itself. I guess the principle of something not being broke does not require any form of fixing applies here, don’t you think so?

Or would you rather to see the Galaxy S4 take the same road as that of the Galaxy Note 2 which will feature the NFC chip on the battery cover itself. Apparently, the leaked battery that you see above was taken from somewhere in China, and it remains to be seen whether the image is legit or not. what do you think?
