Samsung Pay in use, launch in the UK delayed for 2017

Although its arrival to the UK was expected for this December, it looks like Samsung's mobile payment service will only make its debut in the area in 2017. Unfortunately, no accurate release date has been unveiled yet.

Samsung Pay made its debut back in 2015, first in South Korea and the US. After these two, Samsung made its mobile payment service available to customers in Australia, Brazil, Russia, Singapore, and a few other countries. Unfortunately, it looks like the promise to launch Samsung Pay in the UK by the end of the year will not be fulfilled.

While a Samsung spokesman confirmed a launch of the service in 2017, The Telegraph reveals that "the launch is believed to have been tied up amid negotiations with banks." Unfortunately, Samsung's confirmation does not include a specific time frame. "Following successful launches of Samsung Pay around the world, we are planning to launch the service in the UK in 2017," reads the company's statement.

Apple Pay and Android Pay are already present in the UK, but the second does not offer support for Samsung's smartwatches. We will get back to this topic as soon as we find out anything new, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
