No, it does not have the induction coil built in, that's a feature not found on many phones besides the Nexuses.

Hmm. I have another HTC First that I took apart and took pictures. I see what looks to be a coil of some sort.

I made a diagram with components labeled. I could not peel the coil off so I can't see how many windings it has. The diagram is attached to this post.

As I was posting this, I had an idea. Could this be the NFC coil?

[EDIT]

The forum seems to like to 404 on attachments, so I'll upload it to an image host. Here:



Oh, and I do apologize about the photo quality. Taken with HTC First, get the idea. This is the 9th take.

I'm sure since the first had NFC/beam capability then could be possible

Considering I've used it, I'd say so. But which coil am I looking at inside the phone?

I don't see what else it could be that would require a coil near the backside of the phone. Nothing else listed in the specs sounds likely.
