Infrared Port is a connectivity option in some high end smartphone. It uses a infrared beam to transfer data from one phone to another. It transfers large data within seconds and therefore is very useful.
The only problem in Infrared Port is that it is uni directional and has short range of connectivity.
Infrared port was superseded by Bluetooth and NFC which have long range of connectivity than Infrared Port and are multi directional.
