I don't believe the door handle has the NFC capabilities (someone here will correct me if I'm wrong I'm sure haha). I think there's a better chance of seeing Samsungs version which uses UWB tech (essentially a signal like the key) but even that is up in the air I give it a slight likelihood seeing how Samsung Is partnered with Audi on this featureOne of only a few things I'll miss from my Tesla is the phone-as-key feature. I love not having to carry keys with me, but I'll have to get used to having the ID.4 fob now.
I'm curious if the door-handles and interior have the requisite sensors on the ID.4, and maybe it's just not activated yet. Wireless CarPlay is a huge win - I hope they go all the way and enable CarKey as well, if not on this model, then future ones.
