NFC “chip” on Samsung batteries

There is a hoax going round, stating that Samsung has a chip on your battery and is stealing your information. Even the guy in the video above was pranked, for the very same reason. Folks, it’s a hoax. Pure and simple. That so-called chip is in fact an antenna. The real NFC chip is in your phone. By stripping out that antenna you are in fact stripping out NFC from your phone! And in case you all are wondering what NFC is, it stands for Near Field Communication and this explanation from Wikipedia nails it:

Near field communication (NFC) is a set of ideas and technology that enables smartphones and other devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching the devices together or bringing them into proximity to a distance of typically 10 cm (3.9 in) or less.

So there you have it. Do some research in the future before you all believe any of that crap on the internet
