Enhanced TNG Card With NFC Capabilities Spotted For Sale Online Ahead Of Possible Launch
Author Avatar

An online merchant appears to be selling an upgraded Touch ‘n Go (TNG) card, despite the card not having been officially launched yet. Dubbed the Enhanced TNG card, details of the new offering had recently been leaked online, offering us a glimpse into the card’s ability to allow top-ups using near-field communication (NFC) technology.

The listing states that the card is an “NFC Series 2022” TNG Card, sold on Lazada at the price of RM19.00. In it, the seller also shared images of several pearlescent cards stated to be Enhanced TNG cards (expiring in 2029), along with screenshots of how to use the NFC top-up feature.

The card in the listing are similar to those seen in the leaked videos and dedicated support section of the Enhanced TNG card (both no longer viewable by public). In these sources, it was revealed that customers will need to first link the Enhanced TNG card to their TNG eWallet before they can activate and use the NFC reload function. Once you’ve linked it, you can then top up your TNG card by reloading your eWallet, and then placing the TNG card on the back of your phone (with NFC activated).

With this, TNG customers can certainly look forward to a more convenient top-up experience when reloading their TNG cards in the near future. With current TNG cards, you are still required to visit a participating store or a TNG kiosk in order to top up your cards – which definitely is a hassle by today’s standards.

To note, the arrival of the Enhanced TNG card has been a long time coming, given that TNG has already spoken about its plan to launch an NFC-enabled card several times prior to this. Back in February 2021, the company said that it hoped to roll the new card out by the end of 2021. This was eventually postponed to a later date, with the previous chief executive officer of TNG Digital, Ignatius Ong saying in January 2022 that the card will be launched “in the next few weeks”.
