Here in the UK, we have been waiting, ever so patiently, for the launch of Samsung Pay, the companies mobile payment service. Information gleaned from sales executives can be a bit sketchy at times (understatement of the year), but it looks like the wait might finally be over soon.
One of the readers of Sammobile has sent in screenshots of two chats with two different Samsung reps that confirm May 16th as the actual launch date of Samsung Pay in the UK. Seeing that there are actually a couple of reps giving out the same date does add to the credibility of the Information.
The UK release of Samsung Pay is thought to have been delayed by some UK legal red tape, but hopefully all this has been settled now. We should see the release of both NFC and MST features, meaning that most of the terminals in the UK are covered. I’ve recently started using Android Pay on my Android device, but I’m looking forward to the day that I can use it on my Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch.
