Sweden is the 13th country that Samsung Pay is heading to

Samsung has been hard at work with expanding its support for the Samsung Pay mobile payment platform, and today we have word of yet another country that will soon be added to the list of areas that the service supports - Sweden. 

Va Finans reported this bit of information on its website, but an exact timeframe as to when Samsung Pay would be launching was unfortunately not detailed. Samsung is expected to hold a press conference in Sweden later this week on Thursday, March 9, so it's likely that we'll get that information sooner rather than later.

This news comes just a day after we learned that Samsung Pay had begun its rollout over in India, and Malaysia also received support for the service back in December. When it's launched in Sweden, Samsung Pay will officially be accessible in 13 different countries. That's not too far off from Apple Pay's availability in 15 different locations, and Samsung doesn't show a single sign of slowing down this expansion whatsoever.

I thought Koreans were superstitious people...13th shouldn't be a good number. Why didn't they just skip to the 14th XD

13 may be unlucky number in Western culture, it is not so in many parts of Asia. Koreans generally consider number 4 as the unlucky number due to the similarities of its pronunciation to the Chinese character (word) "death". A lot of buildings skip 4th floor for that reason.
