Samsung Wallet Begins Roll Out in Singapore and 7 Other Marketsby Fintech News Singapore January 31, 2023
Samsung Wallet will be rolled out in eight new markets, including Singapore, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Brazil, and Canada starting at the end of January.
The wallet is a platform that enables Galaxy users to organise digital keys, boarding passes, identification cards and more in one app.
It also allows users to add their vaccine record to Samsung Wallet using using CommonHealth.
Additionally, the Samsung Wallet has a digital assets card that allows users to view their crypto assets and its total value.
Samsung said in a statement that the availability and launch of specific features and supported device models may vary by market and are subject to change.
In May 2020, Samsung had integrated with Axiata Digital’s Boost in Malaysia but opted to discontinue the Boost QR payment feature on its Samsung Pay app just a year later.
“When Samsung launched Samsung Wallet last year, we committed to building the experience through open partnerships with our business and service providers and ensuring access to the platform for as many people as possible.
Over the past several months, we’ve worked hard to rapidly expand the availability of Samsung Wallet, bringing the platform to more potential users. We look forward to sharing exciting new developments in the year ahead.”
said Jeanie Han, EVP and Head of Digital Wallet Team at Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics.
Last year, Samsung successfully launched the Samsung Wallet platform and expanded its services to 21 countries – Bahrain, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vietnam, UAE, the U.K., and the U.S.
