Your Xiaomi 13 phone will soon be able to unlock your BMW vehicle with NFC thanks to the Xiaomi and Google collaboration. At today’s Xiaomi event, 3 phones among Xiaomi 13 series were introduced: Xiaomi 13 Lite, Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro.
It was previously rumored that Xiaomi 12S series will use NFC to access BMW vehicles, but this was not particularly significant given that Xiaomi 12S series is not offered for sale globally.
