Samsung announced that Samsung Wallet will be available in eight new markets soon. From its newsroom, Malaysia happens to be one of the markets, alongside Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and Taiwan. The launching date is set for the end of January.

Samsung Wallet is more than just an electronic wallet for making payments; it has additional functions. This involves both monitoring its digital assets, such as bitcoins, and securely storing passwords using a programme like Samsung Pass. Also included in Samsung Wallet are IDs, licences, and even student IDs.

Additionally, Samsung intends to incorporate SmartThings so that customers can add digital house keys. In terms of security, Samsung Wallet will offer fingerprint identification to protect sensitive data, and boarding passes should be compatible as well. The availability of digital car keys in Malaysia is yet unknown.

The Samsung Wallet platform was successfully introduced by Samsung last year, and its services were extended to 21 more nations. We eagerly anticipate how the feature would soon help Samsung users in Malaysia.
