Users of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be able to make Visa payments using Samsung Pay; a service that will be launched later this year.

Samsung Pay, the Visa Token service technology is considered more secure than plastic cards as it will replace sensitive information found on cards with a unique series of numbers used to authorise payments without exposing actual account details.

Samsung Pay users will be able to make Visa purchases by selecting their preferred Visa account and holding their device to a payment terminal.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure transmission (MST); these will allow for the wireless functions.

Samsung Pay will first launch in the US during the 2015 summer.
