Samsung has officially launched Samsung Pay in the Hong Kong market following a month-long early access program to work out the kinks. Supporting both near field communication (NFC) and Samsung’s proprietary magnetic secure transmission (MST) technologies for payments, Samsung says it will be available almost anywhere a point-of-sale (POS) terminal is available.
Samsung pay is available on Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 models.
“We are happy to have received overwhelming, positive responses from users of Samsung Pay’s Early Access Program,” said Samsung’s Yiyin Zhao, vice president and head of information technology and mobile communication business.
“We look forward to building a complete digital wallet solution in Hong Kong, which will allow users to not only pay conveniently, but also use membership cards and many more.”
