About a week ago Samsung announced that the company is going to confirm its global expansion plans for Samsung Pay at its Mobile World Congress 2016 event and it has done precisely that today. The company has confirmed that Samsung Pay is going to be expanded to seven new countries this year. It’s already available in South Korea and United States where more than 5 million people have already signed up to use the payments service.

Samsung Pay will be expanded to Australia, Canada, Brazil, Singapore, Spain and UK this year, as we had exclusively reported, the company has already confirmed that Samsung Pay will go live in China next month. The company didn’t confirm precisely when the service will go live in these markets but at least it has confirmed that Samsung Pay will certainly be launched in these countries in 2016.
