With Samsung Pay’s launch inching closer and closer, the Korean manufacturer has decided to shut down the Samsung Wallet service. Samsung is currently emailing all Samsung Wallet users that the service will be discontinued on June 30th; it’s not saying what the reason is, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the reason is the company’s upcoming payment service.
Any tickets or reservations made by users through Samsung Wallet will be available after its termination, but everything else (like creating new reservations) will be disabled post June 30th. We’re not exactly sure how many users Samsung Wallet has out there, but its discontinuation is no doubt going to irk a few folks. Then again, given Samsung’s ambitious plans for Samsung Pay, it’s not surprising that its wallet service will be shut down.
Here’s the email Samsung is sending out to users.
