Samsung launches digital-first payment card in the UK

Samsung has announced the availability of a digital-first Samsung Pay Card designed to give customers in the UK “a better banking experience through their Samsung smartphone and smartwatch, whilst gaining the rewards they want along the way”.

Samsung is working with Curve and Mastercard for the launch of the new card.

The move follows the launch in the US in July of Samsung Money by SoFi. Announced in May 2020, the service provides “a mobile-first money management experience that brings a cash management account and a Mastercard-branded debit card along with exclusive benefits into Samsung Pay”.
