It has been revealed today that Samsung will launch its mobile payment platform in Brazil on Tuesday, July 19; just in time for the Olympic Games that kick off on Friday, August 5. This news comes one month after the manufacturer commenced a pre-launch trial of Samsung Pay in the region, and a mere two days after the service went live in Puerto Rico.

“Samsung Pay reinforces the company’s focus to bring value to both consumers and partners by bringing innovative services to your smartphones,” said Thomas Ko, Vice President of Samsung Pay in a statement. “We are always exploring creative technologies and use cases to provide consumers with an immersive and holistic mobile wallet experience.”

Unfortunately, it’s currently unclear what banks will support the service when it launches. However, we suspect that the top three — Banco do Brasil, Itau, and Caixa Economica Federa — are likely on board. Those traveling to Brazil from a country that already has compatibility for Samsung Pay will also be able to use their registered credit/debit cards to make payments.
