Samsung Wallet launching soon in India: What to expect
Your Galaxy smartphone will soon double up as a digital wallet
Samsung has today announced that its Wallet app will soon be available in eight new regions, including India. The app will come to Samsung smartphones towards the end of this month, and countries like Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan.
Unlike Samsung Pay, which is already available in India, the new Samsung Wallet app can do a lot more. Initially available only to users in the US and South Korea, the app was later made available to 19 more countries. Now, it’s on its way to India as well. Here’s a quick look at what Samsung users can expect once Wallet is available for them.
What is Samsung Wallet?
As put by Samsung, Wallet is a “secure, go-everywhere app to conveniently organise and use daily essentials.” The app lets you store your digital documents safely, like how the DigiLocker app works in India. These documents can then be produced digitally on demand straight from the app. Samsung Wallet is also secured by Samsung Knox, the brand’s own encryption standard.

Documents that can be stored on Samsung Wallet include boarding passes, credit cards, debit cards, digital keys and gift cards. You can also store health certificates, ID cards, loyalty cards and membership cards. With newer versions the app also supports NFT collections.
Samsung also allows users to share access to their Wallet with friends and family members, allowing them to get your cards and documents as and when needed. Other features are expected to be added to the tool later this year.
How to get Samsung Wallet?
When Samsung Wallet is available in your country, you can visit the Galaxy Store on any Samsung phone to download the app. Samsung also mentions on its website that existing Samsung Pay users can simply update their app to begin using Samsung Wallet.
