Samsung has announced that it is in the process of launching its new Samsung Wallet in the UK, and the new service was launched in the US earlier this month.
Samsung Wallet will combine both Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass into one app and can be used for payments, to store loyalty cards, gift cards, and more.
“Samsung Wallet brings a new level of everyday convenience to mobile devices with a completely secure environment for storing passwords, payment cards, and more,” said Tig Dusange, European Director of Content and Services, ETO at Samsung Electronics. “As part of our continued commitment to an open ecosystem, we will continue to expand the capabilities of Samsung Wallet by working closely with our trusted partners and developers.”
