Samsung Pay is expected to debut in India in the first half of the year and handsets are already starting to receive the update. According to SamMobile, the latest software update for the Galaxy Note 5 packed the Samsung Pay app as well. Now, the time has arrived for the Galaxy A7 (2016) to receive the same treatment.

SamMobile's sources claim that the firmware version A710FXXU2BPJ7 now rolls out in India and, sadly, there are no significant changes inside it. Leaving the Samsung Pay app aside, there is no new security patch or any major improvement to talk about. However, other compatible devices are expected to receive Samsung Pay support in the coming weeks as well, in advance for the official launch of the service in the country.

Recent reports reveal that Samsung will team up with American Express to launch the service, adding support for MasterCard and Visa after a while as well.

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.
