Default [Q] Dual Sim S4 Mini ....... Hidden Features?

I have the i9192 model and was wondering if some of the features that are different from the other S4 mini models are present in the hardware but missing due to software.

For example NFC.

Can some of these be hidden to be turned on later officially or unofficially with software modifications?

Concerning NFC there's no NFC antenna so I guess you can forget (I don't really understand NFC is usefull for but anyway)
4G will not happen in case because of the hardware also and except things like smart rotation or other feature in the galaxy s4 (full software) I don't really see any thing they would have hide.

What they did in fact is hidding the knox capabilities and it avoid warranty when you want to do anything else than upgrading to new version .

I thought that the NFC antenna is normally in the battery.

And it seems to be written on the battery when oinside the batterie.
And it does not look to be one :/

Well my question was what NFC usefull for, now you phrase it, it does sound like (in my hears) as completly useless
But I guess there is still some fun features to use with that.
