The Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro is a rugged Android smartphone “designed and engineered for frontline workers across a variety of industries around the world.”
The Galaxy XCover Pro features NFC that has been certified to EMV Level 1 for use as a mPOS terminal, allowing vendors equipped with the device to accept payments from NFC phones, wearables and contactless cards without extra hardware.
The device features Samsung POS, a mobile-based point of sale solution that has been approved by Visa’s Tap to Phone pilot program.
“Tap to Phone’s sophisticated software terminal builds on EMV chip transaction to generate the same functionality while giving peace of mind and assurance that financial data remains safe and secure,” says Samsung. “Customers will be able to make payments in seconds by simply tapping their contactless card, phone or watch to the Galaxy XCover Pro.”
