According to South Korean media outlet Newsis, the LG G6 flagship will not debut with LG Pay support. In fact, the same source reveals that LG might cancel its mobile payment service completely.

Although the last time we heard of LG's upcoming mobile payment service, the talk was about a delay of its launch and nothing more, now it looks like LG Pay might never arrive. However, in the short run, it seems that LG G6 will launch without LG-branded mobile payment capabilities.

According to South Korean media outlet Newsis, the LG Pay service will not be featured by the upcoming G6 flagship and the White Card process for the handset has been scrapped. The virtual card concept was unveiled back in 2016, but was never brought to life. The plan was to use a one-time password and an integrated circuit chip for access to the LG Pay service.

The same source mentioned above says that LG changed the development course of the service and simply has no time to make it work with the upcoming flagship. "A LG spokesman said there were still technology and service methods to discuss, and could not conclusively say when it would be commercialized," reveals ZDNet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
