Samsung Pay & Pay mini support coming to more devices, including some Galaxy M series models

Samsung Pay is one of the most useful services the company has to offer. The mobile payment and digital wallet service by Samsung launched in 2015 and is now available in many countries around the world.

Up until recently, Samsung Pay was reserved for high-end models and some mid-range devices from the company such as the Galaxy S series, Note series, and a handful of devices from the A series.

But it now seems that the South Korean firm is planning to extend Samsung Pay support to more devices, including some models from the M series.

Moreover, devices that can’t get full Samsung Pay support will be getting the toned-down Samsung Pay mini that was first introduced in 2017 on the Galaxy J7 Max/On Max in India.

Samsung Pay mini is not much different from standard mobile wallet apps. It allows for digital payments and is supported by many low-end Galaxy devices from the company.

That said, the company recently rolled out Samsung Pay mini for the Galaxy M12 in India with the March security update and it seems the Galaxy A21s also bagged support for it according to users.

Samsung’s latest Galaxy M42 and M62 smartphones also come with support for Samsung Pay since both smartphones are secured by Knox — the company’s proprietary security framework — making them the first M series devices to get the feature.

But it appears that the company isn’t stopping there. Samsung has been advertising that the service will be coming to more devices as highlighted by a user on the company’s community forums.

Unfortunately, the company hasn’t specified which devices will get support for Samsung Pay or Pay mini. So we may have to wait and see which phones get the feature in the near future.

Nevertheless, feel free to share your thoughts on Samsung’s move to extend support for Samsung Pay and Pay mini to other devices in the comments below.
