The lack of 'Samsung Pay' in Galaxy s6 and S6 Edge

Buyers who have the advantage of Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge may be wondering why Samsung Pay service is not available on their mobile phones. Samsung Pay officially departed living in Singapore. But it was not supported by the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, despite the truth that the 2nd mobile phone supports this function in the United States.

Plainly Samsung Pay in China and do not fit together S6 and S6 Edge. Samsung Pay launched in Australia and on its website mentions that Samsung Pay for S6 and S6 Edge can be prepared in the next HRI. However, the site also suggests S6 and S6 Edge can work through close communication field arena (NFC) and not through technology Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST).

MST namely Samsung Pay the most advantages over other mobile payment such as Apple Pay. This factor because this technology works with traditional magnetic credit card reader. This means that Samsung Pay may be available at more retailers, in comparison along with Apple Pay. Beyond that, the MST transaction limits For individual card limit, not the limit of $ 100 for contactless payment methods such as Apple Pay.

We asked Samsung regarding the lack of Samsung Pay at S6 and S6 Edge. It said: “There are many elements to be considered while production that our telephone models for each market Against that time, we decided to not include Samsung Pay at the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Galaxy models we make Singapore Singapore market was not ready .. and we know it can take time at least one year to make progress for launching Samsung Pay in Singapore. against dikala it, we would be more than half way through the life cycle of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge models. We have reasons including Samsung Pay in each The next flagship model, including the Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5 also S7 and S7 Edge call us. “

Samsung mobile phone that give support MST has tiny metal coils that produce the gravity field for communicating with non-cash magnetic card reader. Samsung acquired technologi yr first joint purchase LoopPay, a single mobile payments company that has been patented technologi MST.

Due to the S6 and S6 Edge appeared not give support For Samsung Pay via MST outside the US, I guess that is that the international variant of this phone may not have the hardware to MST.
