Latest Galaxy Note 5 update for India brings Samsung Pay app

After exclusively reporting a couple of months ago that Samsung is preparing to launch Samsung Pay in India, we reported just last week that the company has started teasing the Samsung Pay launch for India with the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. It appears that the payment service will be rolling out soon as the latest Galaxy Note 5 update that Samsung has released in India today brings the Samsung Pay app.

Samsung is rolling out firmware version N920GUBU3BQA3 for the Galaxy Note 5 in India today. It comes in at just under 320MB. The update brings the usual slew of device stability improvements and bug fixes aside from the Samsung Pay app. It also includes the January security patch for the Galaxy Note 5.

The company is now starting to send out the Samsung Pay app via firmware updates in India. This suggests that the launch of its mobile payments service may just be around the corner. It may only a matter of time before subsequent updates bring this app for other Galaxy smartphones compatible with Samsung Pay.

Pls don´t blame Sammobile for the slow/not happening rollout. It´s just a Fansite, not an official one by Samsung.
