Samsung’s payment service is already live in South Korea where it’s reported to be doing well, the company is already seeing a lot of interest among US consumers as it gears up to launch the service later this month. For now Samsung Pay only works with the company’s expensive Galaxy handsets including but not limited to the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6. Could Samsung ever bring it to cheaper handsets?

It just might, head of Samsung’s mobile division Shin Jong-kyun said that “it will gradually expand,” when asked about the company’s plans of bringing Samsung Pay to cheaper Galaxy handsets. Since Samsung Pay requires NFC those handsets will need to have NFC radios and then they’ll be good to go. Expanding Samsung Pay to cheaper handsets will certainly go a long way in increasing the number of users that rely on Samsung Pay for making payments.
