Seven months after its initial rollout, Samsung is finally launching its Wallet app in India on January 30th, 2023.
Interested users can get this through the Samsung Galaxy Store, while Samsung Pay users can simply update the app to see itself turn into Samsung Wallet. The new app stores all the necessary data for making financial payments and identification cards.
Samsung Wallet Coming to India
As promised last month, Samsung is debuting its new Wallet app in India and seven other countries tomorrow, letting users perform all the necessary transactions through it. Samsung Wallet is a combination of Samsung Pay (used for payments) and Samsung Pass (a password manager).
Combining these both, Samsung introduced its Wallet app in 21 countries initially, viz Bahrain, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vietnam, UAE, the UK, and the US.
And now, the company is bringing this to eight more countries – which include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Samsung announced this move last month and now released a teaser for the launch date.
In a fresh tweet made by Samsung India, the company stated the launch date as January 30th, 2023, calling for a big transformation of Samsung Pay, and with the hashtag #SamsungPayIsGettingBetter.

Interested users in above mentioned countries can get this app from the Galaxy Store app, while the current Samsung Pay users should update their app to see the transformation. Samsung Wallet app is useful in many ways – as it can store your digital boarding passes, credit cards, cryptocurrency, debit cards, digital keys, identification cards, login passwords, and even loyalty/membership cards.
