Samsung Pay expands even further: The service reaches South Africa

Published

on

Samsung is celebrating the third birthday of its mobile payment service, the Samsung Pay and, in lieu of that, the company has expanded the service to the 24th market of the world. Starting today, Samsung Pay will be available to all the supported Samsung devices in South Africa.

Just like a lot of other online payment services, Samsung Pay did not receive a welcoming start as there was a huge lack of cross-platform support and the company was on the verge of calling off the service at one point of time. Thankfully, that did not turn out to be the case and Samsung Pay has grown almost exponentially ever since. The service has passed more than 1.3 billion transactions globally and has tie-ups with more than 2,000 vendors from the banking and financial sector all over the world.

Samsung Pay essentially allows the Samsung Galaxy smartphones users to shop seamlessly without having to carry their credit/debit cards and is way more secure and faster as well.

As of now, only Absa and Standard Bank in South Africa have support for Samsung Pay, but more banks are soon going to follow suit.

All the leading Samsung devices have support for Samsung Pay.

xiaomi black shark 2 full review

Xiaomi has finally launched the second generation of the Black Shark gaming smartphones. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is a substantial upgrade over the Xiaomi Black Shark.

Xiaomi Black Shark 2: What all is new?

For starters, we get the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with RAM up to 12GB. There is an under-display fingerprint scanner at the front of the device. While the rear looks almost the same, we get a bumped-up camera module.

The price of the device is kept at around $511 which is not too big of a jump when compared with the original Black Shark that cost around $577 for the top-of-the-line variant when it was launched.
