Samsung just announced their latest smartphones at Mobile World Congress, the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and now they have announced their new mobile payment service, Samsung Pay.
Last month Samsung announced that they had purchased mobile payment service LoopPay, and Samsung are using the technology they bought in their new Samsung Pay mobile payment system.
