Samsung Pay Mini, which is a trimmed-down version of Samsung Pay, was launched four years ago. The mobile payment service allows users to make online payments and payments at retail locations via QR codes. The service was earlier limited to a few Galaxy A, Galaxy J, and Galaxy On series phones. However, the company has now started rolling it out to more Galaxy A and Galaxy M series devices.

The Galaxy A21s and the Galaxy M12 have started receiving Samsung Pay Mini in India with new software updates. Users of the two phones have reported that the feature was activated after installing the March 2021 security patch. Samsung Pay Mini can be linked to mobile wallets like Paytm and Mobikwik and bank accounts via India’s BHIM UPI interface. Customers can also pay bills, buy gift cards, apply for credit cards and personal loans, and know their credit score.

Samsung has also mentioned on its website that Samsung Pay Mini will be available on more Galaxy smartphones in the future. However, the company didn’t specify the names of compatible devices. The Galaxy M42 5G, which will soon be launched in India, features a full Samsung Pay experience. We expect more existing and upcoming phones with Samsung Knox to get the Samsung Pay Mini feature.

The company started removing MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) from its newer phones, which means that Samsung Pay won’t work on older PoS (Point of Sale) terminals that lack NFC functionality. The company explained that it removed MST from its newer phones because most new PoS systems feature NFC. Samsung had acquired LoopPay six years ago for $250 million for its MST technology.
