Report: Samsung Pay to Debut in the UK on May 16

Samsung Pay on Samsung Galaxy S7 with Android 7.0 NOugat

Samsung Pay has been making huge strides in spreading its wings across the continent, with one of the most recent developments seeing the mobile payment platform officially enter the UAE, Sweden, Switzerland and Hong Kong markets.

Now, in another attempt towards bringing more competition to the likes of Apple Pay and Android Pay, which have been in the UK market for quite some time now, the tech giant is set to roll out Samsung Pay in one of the largest markets in Europe starting May 16.

There’s no official communication on this matter, but Sam Mobile has reason to believe that this could indeed be the day residents of the UK will finally get to see and actually use Samsung Pay in their local stores.

The report is quick to point out that Samsung reps are not easy to believe when it comes to software updates and release or rather launch dates of new products, which means there could also be changes by the time this date comes around.

It was in August 2015 when Samsung Pay came to life. This means that the UK market has had to wait for close to two years before the service hits the local market.

With the service hopefully set to debut in the UK, it will have expanded the market to over 17 countries, with the likes of Mexico, Turkey, Italy and Taiwan set to join the party in the not-so-distant future.
