Samsung officially launched the Wallet app in June this year, providing users with a comprehensive digital wallet. Since then, the app has been gradually rolled out in different countries. Now the company has launched the Samsung Wallet app in South Africa.
The Samsung Wallet app is a combination of the old Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass apps. Interested South African Galaxy customers can open the Samsung Pay or Samsung Pass app on their phone and follow the instructions to update and migrate to Samsung Wallet.
It’s worth mentioning that the release will likely be released in stages, meaning it may not be available to all South African customers on the same day. Enabling smooth updates from Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass to Samsung Wallet will take some time to reach all users.
Additionally, the combination of two older Samsung apps brings additional functionality to users. It enables Galaxy device users to manage digital keys, and access offline and online payments, loyalty cards, transit cards, coupons, and more.
Justin Hume, Vice President of Mobile Experience at Samsung Electronics South Africa says:
“Samsung Wallet is a one-stop solution in replacing a physical wallet. This digital innovation is definitely bringing a new level of everyday convenience to mobile devices with a totally safe and secure environment for storing digital keys, cards, and more. As part of our ongoing commitment to open ecosystems, we will continue to expand on the capabilities of Samsung Wallet by working closely with our trusted, local partners and developers.”
Moreover, the app is now available in multiple countries and 11 more including Bahrain, Denmark, Finland, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Sweden, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates. Access to Samsung Wallet will also be available soon.
