Samsung launches TecTiles 2, now compatible with the Galaxy S4

Samsung announced today that it is updating TecTiles, its programmable NFC tags, to version 2. The latest version of the TecTiles will work with the Galaxy S 4, as well as older NFC-equipped Samsung phones.

TecTile stickers have a small NFC receiver that sends a signal to your smartphone. This signal then triggers an action on your phone such as opening an app, adjusting phone settings, or updating a status on Facebook or Google+.

You can buy TecTiles 2 from today and from retailers in June. Each pack costs $14.99 and includes five stickers. The Samsung TecTile Android app is available for free from Google Play.
