Samsung has joined Google and Apple in launching its own digital wallet platform. The new Samsung Wallet for mobile is launching in more countries and will start to cater digital IDs, loyalty cards, car and smart door keys. It's even possible to track your cryptocurrencies.


  • Samsung launches new Wallet for mobile platform.
  • Samsung Wallet can store digital IDs, car keys, and cryptocurrencies.
  • Samsung Wallet is now available in six new countries starting June 17, 2022.

The new Samsung Wallet will be integrated within the current Samsung Pay service and Samsung Pass. Like with Google Wallet, Samsung users will have an alternative for storing loyalty and membership cards on their Samsung Galaxy devices. According to the manufacturer, support for digital identification cards such as driver's licenses and school IDs is also planned.

For security concerns, the digital wallet relies on Samsung's Knox protection. Samsung also says that only the users will have direct access to the sensitive information stored in their smartphone.

Samsung Wallet for digital car keys and boarding pass storage

In addition, Samsung Wallet will also feature digital automobile keys compatible with select models of BMW made after July 2020 along with Genesis GV60 and G90 models launched in late 2021. Lastly, Hyundai Palisade models introduced after May 2022 will also work with Samsung Wallet.

Currently, only Korean Air flights allow boarding passes to be stored in Samsung Wallet. There is no mention when this feature is coming to other airlines or markets.

Is Samsung Wallet available in your country?

Previously only available in South Korea, Samsung Wallet will arrive in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and the US starting this June 17. It will be replacing your Samsung Pay or Pass feature depending on your region.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
