NFC Chip Manufacturer Broadcom has filed a patent with the USPTO that would allow a chip in a phone to have multiple antennas. This would be great for NFC Smartphones as it would allow multiple "hot spots" on the phone so no more having to turn your phone a specific way and touch one specific area on the phone. Of course, how these NFC Chips and their multiple antennas do or don't get integrated will depend mostly on device manufacturers, but it would be nice to be able to tap the top front or back of your phone to an NFC Tag which seems more natural than having to position a phone so the flat middle back taps a tag.
