Samsung Electronics and BBVA announced that the Spanish bank has become the latest company to join the Samsung Pay mobile payments service. BBVA customers can now use the NFC-based payment platform to purchase items at payment terminals using their Samsung smartphones and smartwatches. In a statement, the longstanding partners also revealed that they're working on new and more secure ways to access the BBVA mobile app, including the on-screen fingerprint scanner of Samsung's Galaxy S10 range and, in the future, via facial recognition using the Samsung Pass ecosystem.
