After Google introduce their Android Pay, tech giant Samsung introduced their own payment system, Samsung Pay. The company has already enabled this feature in Samsung S6 Edge Plus and other flagship models, and now the tech giant is here to launch a mini version of this feature in budget friendly smartphones in India.
"Samsung Pay Mini is designed to cater to requirements of mid-segment consumers. While J7 Max is the first device to get Mini, it will be made available on select existing J-series devices shortly," said Samsung India Senior Vice President; Asim Warsi.
While Samsung Pay was launched in March in India, allowing Samsung customers to tap and pay using the debit/credit cards and wallet stored on their mobile devices, it never supported mid-range smartphones.
"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," said Warsi.
While Samsung Pay supports offline payment by using NFC and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) technologies which allow users to send a magnetic signal from smartphone to the card reader in shopping malls, restaurants and other places that support digital payment. Samsung Pay Mini at the moment won't support this offline feature of tap-and-pay but will support the online (Unified Payments Interface) UPI and mobile wallet payment options.
