After being in closed beta for internal employees, Samsung is further ramping up its efforts ahead of an official release of its mobile payments solution, Samsung Pay, in Malaysia.
The company has now officially launched a dedicated product page for Samsung Pay on its Malaysian website, and an EDM about Samsung Pay will be sent to a select group of people to try out the service when the open beta phase begins on 1 November 2016.
Officially, six smartphones will support Samsung Pay in Malaysia: Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy A7 (2016), and Galaxy A5 (2016).
As we reported earlier, it can now be confirmed that Maybank is working closely with Samsung for the launch of Samsung Pay. For the open beta phase, only Maybank Visa cards (credit, debit, and prepaid) will support Samsung Pay. More banks are expected to come onboard, though there are currently no fixed timeline.
Samsung Pay is the company’s mobile payments solution, allowing users to keep their credit card information within the app, and make purchases using their smartphones. More information can be found at its official product page here.
