Samsung Pay to be improved with McAfee & Visa
As it is speculated that Samsung will unveil its new flagship of Galaxy S6 device during MWV 2015, it turns out that Samsung is also working on the software side of the device. According to sources, Samsung is working on optimizing the TouchWiz on Galaxy S6, trying to make it as smooth as stock Android on the Nexus 6. Now, it seems that they are also collaborating with VISA to improve Samsung Pay, a competitor of Apple Pay. Along with VISA, Samsung will also collaborate with McAfee to protect users from spywares, spams, and viruses.
The collaboration with VISA will mean that any VISA issued cards will automatically be compatible with Samsung Pay. Before, Samsung has worked with Paypal where users have options to authorize their payments through the fingerprint sensors on their devices, such as Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha. Thus, the implementation of a touch-based fingerprint sensor in Galaxy S6 is not a surprise. This allegedly will make Samsung Pay more intuitive, along with the extra features as a result of collaborations with VISA and McAfee.
After reports on Samsung’s profitability in 2014 showing that their revenues and profits are decreasing, they are giving their all to improve their image in the smartphone market and try to recover.
Internally, the Galaxy S6 project is called Project Zero – meaning it’s built on scratch. Speculations say that it may have a metal and glass design with a QHD Super AMOLED display, along with octa-core Exynos 7420 processor. It is also predicted to have a 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and will be running on the improved Touchwiz based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Not forgetting, it will also have the LTE Cat. 10 connectivity.
