We are excited to expand our footprint in digital payment by introducing a whole new experience for our users to make payments while using the camera and Quick Panel,” said Sanjay Razdan, Senior Director, Samsung India.
Samsung’s R&D team built the Scan QR feature specifically for India as the country is witnessing a monumental growth in Scan and Pay. The Scan QR feature, with camera integration, solves the unique needs of Indian consumers and is consistent with Samsung’s ongoing efforts to increase the adoption of digital technology.
