Samsung is bringing its Samsung Pay mobile payment platform to more countries.
The company announced during its CES 2016 press conference that Samsung Pay is coming to
Australia, Singapore and Brazil.
These countries join the UK, Spain, China, the US and Korea as regions where Samsung Pay is available.
Samsung Pay first launched in the US in 2015, using magnetic secure transmission (MST) technology instead of NFC. Samsung pointed out during the conference that Pay works in five times more places compared with NFC-only terminals. To use it, users open the app by swiping, secure it with their fingerprint and hover over the terminal to complete the transaction.
Among the devices Samsung Pay works with are the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5.
