It’s not just the US where Galaxy S21 does not get MST for Samsung Pay



It was revealed earlier this week that the Galaxy S21 series lacks Samsung Pay’s MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) functionality in the US. However, it seems that MST may be missing in Galaxy S21 in more markets than we first thought.

We can now confirm that Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra also lack MST in India, which means that you will not be able to make contactless mobile payments in places that lack NFC machines. Samsung’s new high-end smartphones may lack MST for Samsung Pay in several markets. However, it is not easy to find out exactly which markets still have access to MST with the Galaxy S21 series and which do not, because Samsung has not mentioned it in the official specification sheet on all its localized websites.

NFC payments are still not widespread in various markets, including India, making Samsung Pay’s MST feature a winner. However, Samsung tends to believe that NFC has matured enough that it can now remove MST from smartphones. The South Korean company had already stopped equipping its smartwatches with MST.

Samsung US has suggested that future phones may not have the MST feature. Samsung had bought LoopPay back in February 2015 for around $ 250 million dollars for the MST feature. Who knew five years down the line, the acquisition would have been for nothing.
