Samsung Pay Biometric issue fix

Today, Samsung officially launched the Samsung Wallet app. This is the combination of old Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass apps to provide users with a single comprehensive digital wallet that can store everything from digital tickets to IDs, credit and debit cards, and others.

Samsung Wallet is safe to use and is protected by defense-grade security from Samsung Knox. The app also uses the Open Galaxy ecosystem by integrating with the Samsung Blockchain Wallet to help users easily monitor cryptocurrencies and SmartThings to unlock doors with a digital key.

Samsung Galaxy S24 July 2024 update

Satellite connectivity feature is lacking in the most recent Samsung Galaxy phones. Apple and many Chinese phone makers adopted this technology about two years ago. Meanwhile, Samsung has been keeping it reserved with the Galaxy S23 and S24 series devices.

Samsung is now preparing to deploy a Satellite connectivity feature to Galaxy phones. Various Samsung apps show signs of the under-development feature. Galaxy phones are likely to get it through various communication applications.

Google Messages has been adopting the Satellite SMS feature. Samsung seems to be working with Google to optimize this feature on Galaxy devices. The recent code changes in Samsung Messages suggest that Satellite SMS could be possible on Galaxy through Google Messages.

AndroidAuthority performed APKTeardown on several Samsung apps. Native Galaxy apps such as Emergency SOS, Samsung Messages, and Samsung Phone show signs of satellite messaging feature. The deployment to general consumers could take place with Android 15 later this year.

The recent Apple iPhone models are equipped with Satellite connectivity technology. Huawei and Honor have also debuted it in their recent flagship phones. Beyond that, Huawei’s flagship smartwatch is also capable to let to sending SOS through satellite.

While the feature isn’t in demand, Samsung is lacking in the deployment on Galaxy. A small number of users would have been waiting for it on Galaxy. Hence, the company isn’t in the mood to lag behind its rivals in any aspect that has become a basic functionality in the industry.

Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series may get the satellite connectivity tech through Google Messages. The development is running well thanks to the inclusion of strings in the latest app versions. We will keep you updated with further developments.
