Samsung Pay could make its debut in the UK on May 16


Samsung Pay is already available in 13 countries around the world, but some major markets like the UK are still waiting for Samsung's mobile payment service to arrive.

The good news is the wait is almost over for consumers in the UK, as Samsung plans to launch the service in the country this month. The information has been recently confirmed by two different Samsung reps, who said the service would be launched on May 16.

The problem is it's still unclear whether or not Samsung Pay will support both NFC (Near Field Communication) and MST payments in the UK. The information provided by the two Samsung reps is a bit confusing, so we'll probably have to wait until the service goes live.

While one of the Samsung reps confirmed NFC and MST payments would be possible via Samsung Pay, the other one said the company doesn't know yet what features will be available at launch. Still, the important thing is Samsung Pay will soon be available in the UK.
