Samsung Pay Expands to Mexico

Samsung today said its Samsung Pay mobile payment service is now available in Mexico. According to Samsung, its touch-and-go payment tool is accessible in 20 markets around the world, including the U.S. Samsung Pay makes use of both NFC and MST to connect to retail payment terminals. This gives it an advantage over services that use only NFC, such as Apple Pay and Android Pay. In order for Samsung Pay to function in Mexico, the company partnered with a number of card issuers, including American Express, MasterCard, and Visa, and local banks, including Banorte, Banregio, Citibanamex, HSBC, and Santander. Samsung Pay supports credit cards, debit cards, and loyalty cards/programs. It can be secured via iris recognition or fingerprint. Transactions are tokenized in order to maintain security. Samsung Pay is available on many of Samsung's top-tier handsets, such as the Galaxy S8 and Note8.
Urban Armor Gear (UAG) makes a range of semi-rugged cases for today's top smartphones. The UAG Plasma Series and UAG Monarch Series for the Samsung Galaxy S8 are more industrial-looking than most, but offer a higher degree of protection in return.
The last twelve months have given us some of the most compelling smartphones ever made. New screen shapes, advanced cameras, and waterproof bodies have improved the everyday experience of those willing to fork over lots of cash for high-end handsets.
Samsung is back with the Note8, a wholly reimagined handset when compared to the disastrous (and fire prone) Note7. This year's Note smartphone takes cues from Samsung's existing Galaxy S8 devices thanks to the Infinity Display with curved edges.
The Galaxy Note8 is Samsung's ultimate flagship for 2017. The Note8 takes the attractive design language from Samsung's own Galaxy S8 and pairs it with one of the largest screens and best cameras available.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is now on sale in the U.S. Though third-party cases are widely available, Samsung has its own, high-end Alcantara case for the phone.
