Samsung now lets users scan and pay using camera or Quick Panel in India 



Samsung Galaxy S21

Samsung, India’s most trusted smartphone brand, has introduced a new feature – the Scan QR feature, to make hassle-free payments in India. The Scan QR feature allows users to make QR code payments by turning on the camera or by selecting the QR code scanning option on a quick panel.

To further the goal of Cashless and Digital India, Samsung has customized the Scan QR Code feature to suit its users in India. This Scan QR feature is currently live on Samsung Pay compatible devices. Users must have the latest software to access the Scan QR option.

Samsung’s R&D team has created a Scan QR feature for India directly as the country sees significant growth in Scan and Pay. The Scan QR feature, which includes camera integration, solves the unique needs of Indian consumers and is in line with Samsung’s ongoing efforts to increase the adoption of digital technology.

With a combination of camera and Scan QR, payments can be started with a minimal click. The Scan QR feature also reduces the amount of time spent searching for Scan QR within the app before users can scan the QR and make payments.

The integration of QR Scan is extended to other Galaxy devices with FOTA and software updates. The Scan QR feature is live on selected models and will be available on additional devices with software updates.

The Scan QR feature is currently live throughout the Galaxy Z series, the Galaxy S21 series, the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy Note 20 series, the Galaxy Note 10 series, the Galaxy M series, the Galaxy series A series of Galaxy F series

Final Software Stand: Which Samsung Phones Will Say Goodbye After Android 14/One UI 6?



Samsung Galaxy A52s September 2023 update

Samsung takes Galaxy’s software support quite seriously. The company is continuously enhancing its software department and cementing its lead in after-sales support. Android 14-based One UI 6 is coming later this year as the last major update for several Samsung devices.

As Android 14 is yet to officially land on Samsung devices, we’ve compiled a list of handsets, which will have to spend their remaining time on the One UI 6. As the company’s software policy is pretty clear, there’s no confusion on models’ eligibility for updates.

Galaxy S21 was eligible for major updates up to Android 14, while Samsung promised additional OS support. This means, the upcoming Android 14 will not be the last OS upgrade for the lineup, and the same applies to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.

The S21 FE launched with Android 12 out of the box, while 2022’s revised policy makes it eligible for updates up to Android 16. All flagships launched after the S21 line are eligible for 4 OS, while several Galaxy A, M, and F series phones will have to stick with Android 14.

Galaxy A series phones that are eligible for 3 OS will end up getting major upgrades post-Android 14 release. Meanwhile, several mid-range and budget phones from Galaxy M and Galaxy F lineups are supported by just two major upgrades.

Android 14-based One UI 6 will be the last major update for these Samsung devices:

  • Galaxy A72
  • Galaxy A52 (A52 5G, A52s)
  • Galaxy A23
  • Galaxy A13
  • Galaxy M53 5G
  • Galaxy M33 5G
  • Galaxy M23
  • Galaxy M13
  • Galaxy F23
  • Galaxy F13

This year’s Samsung Developers Conference taking place in the first week of October. For reference, the SDC22 was held in the last week of October 2022, with the rollout started in November. Thanks to Samsung’s early SDC23 event, flagship Galaxy devices may get the Stable update earlier than last year.

Galaxy devices that are in Beta stage are most likely to get upgraded to Stable One UI 6, based on Android 14, by October 2023. This includes the popular foldables, flagship tablet lineups, Galaxy S23/S22/S21 series and the best mid-rangers i.e. Galaxy A54/A34.
