Recent findings have pointed out that Axiata-owned Boost E-wallet will soon be supported on Samsung Pay. A teaser image of this upcoming partnership was spotted by a local Samsung Galaxy S20 user when setting up the latter’s app on their device.
The teaser, which appeared when downloading additional files for the app, showcases a card with the E-wallet’s branding along with the Samsung service’s description. However, this image no longer appears when we recently downloaded the app on our Galaxy S20 unit.
Regardless, Lowyat.net user PJng confirms that Boost asset data can be found in Samsung Pay’s apk file. This potentially suggests that the E-wallet’s integration into the Korean tech giant’s NFC-based payment system is likely to happen soon.
Details of how the Axiata-owned E-wallet will work with Samsung’s payment system is still unknown for now. We’ll eventually find out when both parties officially announce this partnership in the near future.
