Samsung Pay Gets Approved On Verizon For Note 5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+
If you’re a Samsung user on Verizon Wireless, you’ll be happy to note (no puns intended) that Verizon has today approved Samsung Pay for compatible devices. A software update will be coming soon to the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy Edge+. There’s no timing as of yet on when this update will arrive, but it should be relatively soon.
If you’re unfamiliar with Samsung Pay, it’s a new mobile payment service that runs off of NFC, but also off of standard magnetic strip readers. This is what sets it apart from Apple Pay and Android Pay.
