Galaxy S4 to come with Visa payments applet

Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 will come with Visa’s payWave contactless payments applet preloaded into an embedded secure element.

This, says Samsung, “can be used by both MNOs and banks; more payment applets from multiple brands are planned to be preloaded into the embedded secure element in coming months. NFC payments will be commercially available on the Galaxy S4 on a global basis using the embedded secure element, in addition to using the SIM-based secure element.”
