Affordable Smartphones Soon to have Fingerprint Sensors and Samsung Pay

19 November, 2015 Samsung


As per a report that got out of South Korea, Samsung is on its way to make a few new features available in the affordable smartphones.


We're discussing about the fingerprint sensor and the support for Samsung Pay along with NFC. A source informed that Samsung is planning to deploy fingerprint sensors in budget smartphone models, although we're not quite sure what kind of smartphones would fall into the "budget" segment.


It seems that Samsung is getting affected by the Chinese makers, who include fingerprint scanners in lower to medium range devices. Moreover, at the same price point Chinese makers offer more features than Samsung. The tech giant is taking these steps to bolster its presence in the emerging markets. Currently Samsung is holding the top spot in 14 out of 15 emerging smartphone markets.


Unfortunately Samsung has not yet given any particular time frame to make these features available in the budget segment. As per speculations, Samsung Pay will be available in low and medium range smartphones in the first half of 2016. This will be rolled out for the company's Android devices. Analysts are still divided in their opinions of whether its Tizen smartphone will also have support for the payment system. Customers can expect access to some high-end Tizen offerings next year.
