Jeanie Han, the EVP and Head of Digital Life Team at Samsung Electronics'' Mobile eXperience Business, commented on the expansion.
Samsung Wallet takes everyday convenience to the next level, and we have worked closely with our trusted partners and developers to enhance our Wallet experience. We are aiming to bring the platform to as many markets as possible, as soon as possible, thus that more Samsung Galaxy users have the opportunity to reap the benefits of the digital wallet.
One of the advantages of Samsung Wallet over competitors apps is that it is protected by Samsungs Knox security platform, which encrypts your data to provide you more protection. Deutly, your sensitive Samsung Wallet data is stored in a locked environment, making digital and physical hacking attempts more difficult.
