Samsung, the South Korean tech giant, has merged its mobile payment solution, Samsung Pay, and password management app, Samsung Pass, to launch Samsung Wallet in India. The company made this announcement through its official Twitter handle on January 30.
Samsung had previously announced that the app would be launched in India and seven other markets – Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan – by the end of January.
The upgraded app now features the ability to store credit/debit cards, digital currency, digital keys, login passwords, and health/vaccine passes, as well as the capability for mobile transactions through NFC and UPI, like the Samsung Pay.
Samsung Wallet can be downloaded as an update to the Samsung Pay app through the Galaxy Store and will eventually be available for all Samsung Pay-enabled smartphones. The company is expected to expand Samsung Wallet in more regions in the upcoming months.
