The new Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be launched in New York on 29 March but Samsung are keen to show that they have not forgotten some their older devices.
According to a new report, more users than ever before will be able to use Samsung Pay in Thailand even if they have an older Samsung smarpthone.
Samsung Pay was officially launched in Thailand in February, following a trial period which began in October 2016, allows users to pay for things using their smartphone instead of handing over cash or their credit card.
When it was first launched in Korea in 2015 on its premium smartphones as well as the Gear 3 watch but the company are now preparing to roll it out to a number of other devices.
Mashable reported that Samsung Pay will be available on the Galaxy J series and devices that may not have NFC technology thanks to some tweaks that will enable the user to enter a PIN rather than having to rely on a scan of their fingerprint to authorise payments.
Samsung Pay is currently available on the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and its new Galaxy A series.
Samsung Pay will certainly be available on the Galaxy S8 that will go on sale next month and will be Samsung’s biggest release to date.
The device will have a 5.8-inch Quad HD display whilst maintaining a similar footprint to its predecessor the S7. The Galaxy S8 is also expected to be a 6.2-inch QHD AMOLED display.
