Samsung India expands Samsung Pay Scan QR in camera, quick panel to more Galaxy phones

Samsung India is expanding its Scan QR feature to make hassle-free payments to more devices in India. This enables users to make QR code payments by opening the camera or selecting the Scan QR code option from the Quick Panel.

Samsung said that its R&D team built the Scan QR feature specifically for India as the country is witnessing a monumental growth in Scan and Pay. With camera and Scan QR integration, payments can be initiated with minimal clicks. The Scan QR feature also reduces the time invested in searching for Scan QR within the app before users can scan QR & make payments, said the company.

The Scan QR feature that is currently live across Galaxy Z series, Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note20 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy M series, Galaxy A series and Galaxy F series will be expanded to other Galaxy devices with FOTA and software updates.
