The shortcut "NFC" stands for "Near Field Communication". This technology enables data exchange over short distances of a few centimeters. NFC is therefore intended as an additional possibility for data transmission in addition to Bluetooth. 

The NFC function can be used to make payments or purchase tickets. In some cases, you may need to install additional apps for this function. In addition, pictures, for example, can be transferred to other NFC-enabled devices.

The GS290 and GX290 are equipped with the NFC function.
