New Samsung payment system debuting with Galaxy S6 confirmed by Korean media

Samsung is often wont to go after Apple when it comes to some major features. We saw the Korean manufacturer implement a fingerprint sensor in its flagships after Apple introduced it in the iPhone, and we recently exclusively leaked details on Samsung’s new payment system and that it is working with VISA to make it great for consumers. Now, the Korean media is reiterating that the Galaxy S6 will indeed introduce us to Samsung’s Apple Pay competitor, which will be based on the LoopPay technology.

Samsung is reportedly adding advanced authentication methods using the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S6 – we had confirmed earlier that the S6 would feature a touch-based fingerprint scanner, and it would certainly add to the intuitiveness of Samsung’s payment feature. It has been rumored that LoopPay is making payment enabled cases for existing Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S5 and Note 4, and we will likely see LoopPay and Samsung’s collaboration for the payment system come to the fore with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

I mean it was just so obvious that the only reason that CrApple bought “Authentic” out from under all their competition, was to prevent Samsung from including an Authentic TOUCH SENSOR in the Home Button or side. Which they had already patented in 2011. That was 8 months before GS3 Launched and Samsung already had software in GS3’s OS firmware. Discovered while Devs at XDA, digging into it the following year before iPhone 5s even launched. Fact is that Samsung had been using Authentic Touch ID sensors on Secure Access… Read more »
