Samsung Pay to be extended for more affordable smartphones in India soon
Samsung’s own Mobile Payment system Samsung Pay was launched back in 2015, made available only for flagship phones initially. Now, the company has changed the way they include NFC based payment on their device lineups, by enabling inbuilt Samsung Okay on their latest mid-range devices in India – Galaxy J7 Pro and J7 Max.
As of their initial policy, Samsung has enabled the payment system only in their flagships including Galaxy S6 Edge+, S7, S7 Edge, S8 and S8+. According to the company, after they have included Samsung Pay in mid rangers it received a warm welcome from Indians. So they now gets ready to enable Samsung Pay gradually on to their mid rangers soon in India. It is very exciting that the Samsung first attempt to rollout Samsung pay onto other devices than Flagships yet to be happen soon. Probably, they will announce it only on NFC enabled devices, or they have to develop something like LG Payment System which doesn’t actually want NFC to read and Pay.
“Since its launch in India, we have received a tremendous response to Samsung Pay and we remain committed to taking it to a maximum number of consumers. Over the next few weeks, we plan to extend Samsung Mini as an update to some existing users of devices like J7 Prime”, says Samsung India Senior VP. Also, more J series devices will start receiving Samsung Pay Mini, which is a miniature version of actual Samsung Pay within few weeks.
