HTC One X – Jelly Bean Update and New Symbol

After updating their HTC One X to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, several users started noticing a new symbol on the notification screen and were wondering what it was.


Well, the answer is rather simple, really – the infamous symbol is the NFC logo and is there to show you that your NFC (or near-field communication) is turned on, so it acts similar to more popular symbols such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Apparently, the group behind NFC wants to make sure everybody knows they have NFC on their device and for that reason the setting is automatically turned on after you make the JB update. Is that symbol bothering you or you never use NFC? Then you can just turn it off and the symbol will be gone.

That’s about it, any thoughts you’d like to share with us on the matter?

Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding the HTC One X Jelly Bean update and NFC symbol.
