New smartphones of Samsung don't support contactless payment on old terminals


Samsung intends to limit the number of the terminals compatible to Samsung Pay, having refused support of the MST standard. It means that owners of new smartphones and the smart watch of the producer will have less chances to pay off with a contactless way in institutions where terminals of last generation are still used.

the MST Standard is unique and incredibly useful decision which allows to pay off on terminals without NFC support. The technology generates magnetic field which imitates use of the card with a magnetic tape, providing carrying out transaction even where didn't even hear about contactless payment. Smartphones of Samsung without MST support Galaxy A6 became the First smartphone without support of MST. The device has got support of contactless payment, but has lost an opportunity to interact with old terminals. Subsequently this tendency was picked up by Galaxy A7 (2018), obviously indicating intention of Samsung "kill" technology of imitation of magnetic field. Why it is impossible to refuse MST Despite the growing popularity of contactless terminals, support of MST can be very useful to inhabitants of the periphery where in the course there are still terminals with the magnetic reader. And the refusal of Samsung of MST risks to deprive hundreds and thousands of users of an opportunity to use the Samsung Pay service.
