It looks as if the Galaxy S8 is the only phone that Republic currently offers with NFC capability. Am I right about this?
Not at all. Many of the phones have NFC. See the chart here: Detailed Supported Phone Features
Thanks, that’s helpful. However, it looks like most of these would be in the “bring your own phone” category.
If you’re asking specifically about the phones currently for sale by Republic, then the following have NFC:
Samsung Galaxy S10e/S10/S10+
Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung Galaxy S9
Samsung Galaxy J7
But yes, you’re correct, the much larger selection would require that you purchase the phone elsewhere for use with Republic.
