SAMSUNG PAY (worth revolutionizing our payment methods?)


SINCE 8 November 2016 (demonetization date in India),cashless payment methods and internet banking had taken new heights and companies like Paytm and quickcharge etc. are working hard  to bring the comfort of payment to the smart phones lying in your pockets.
These apps (after installing in your devices and after filling your banking details for transactions and all)  can help you pay your online bills, recharge your services and take or give cash from one to the other person etc....
But when these applications can provide you with all these great services then what is so special about the upcoming Samsung electronics' initiative namely SAMSUNG PAY.(does not include any paid promotions).




SAMSUNG PAY

  • An initiative by Samsung electronics.


  • It let users make online payments using compatible phones and basically works the best with Samsung devices.
  • This service of Samsung does not only allow you to make con-tactless payments but also incorporates an electromagnetic transmission system that makes it accessible on payment terminals(only magnetic stripe supporting ones).
FUN FACT o.1 - Samsung PAY was initially developed by an crowdfunded startup company, LoopPay.
  • Samsung acquired the Samsung pay from LoopPay in February,2015.
  • LoopPay believed that there MST(magnetic secure transmission) technology would work with about 90% of all point-of-sale in United States.
FUN FACT 0.2 - SAMSUNG PAY WAS FIRST LAUNCHED IN KOREA ON AUGUST 20,2015.
followed by   -                                                                                                                                               United States,China,Spain,Singapore,Australia,Puerto                         Rico,Brazil,Russia,Thailand,Canada,Malaysia.


AND NOW ON MARCH 6,2017 WE FINALLY WELCOME IT IN INDIA.
  • On May 2016, it was reported that Samsung was developing a smaller version of their PAY service which will be used for online payments only.
  • On January 2017,Samsung confirmed that this smaller version of the service would not be only available on galaxy devices but also on other android devices which will be running lollipop or above versions of android and have a resolution 1280 x 720 pixels or higher.
  • Samsung Pay works the best with their own mobile phone range including -
  1. Galaxy series.
  2. On series.
  3. J series.
  4. Note series.
  5. and any other series which belongs to Samsung Electronics.(but definitely not with any non-smart cell phone series.) 

  • Samsung declares that it will bring Samsung PAY properties of NFC and MST technology payment to its smart watches series.So the comfort of payment will be bought to your wist.


Here is the link that will provide you with the full setup and usage of the service on your probably compatible device-  http://www.samsung.com/in/samsung-pay/ (doesn't include any paid promotions.)
 
hence let us bring it to the conclusion -It looks Samsung is revolutionizing the way we pay by making it more comfortable and relaxingBUT, the truth is something else.Samsung is not the only company which is thinking about revolutionizing the way we pay as there are a bunch of companies which can be seen to deal with it.

 ANDROID PAY by Google - It gives almost all of the android phones the power of tap-to-pay purchases with NFC technology.




APPLE PAY by Apple - Apple PAY is a service initiated by Apple to make payments in-person easier.It only supports ios devices.It sought to replace all other methods of payment like magnetic stripe, credit cards, debit cards or any other method by pure contact-less method. 


MICROSOFT WALLET by Microsoft - IT is a service initiated by Microsoft that let users make payments and store loyalty cards on certain devices.It currently runs the HCE(host card emulation) technology for storing loyalty cards in certain devices (which in my means is pretty impressive).Mostly similar to android pay.




These are some of the services initiated by well-known companies to make the way you pay a lot easier. But, the problem is that even not one of these are till now (March,2017) available in India.

So lets see how Samsung pay establish itself in India and will it be able to reach our aspirations.

Thanks for reading.
Keep up for more awesome stuff.
Don't forget to put your valuable comments down below.
PEACE.....

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Android Versions Named After Sweet

Have you ever thought why are Android versions always named after sweet names ?? Everytime a new Android version is launched its name is kept after a sweet name. Many people have researched about this topic and many have asked Google also. Have you ever tried to find out the core reason behind this? If not then you would find the answer here . First of all let us first see what Google says about this : In 2008 i.e. the year when Android was launched a reporter asked the reason for the same. At that time Google said “It’s kind of like an internal team thing, and we prefer to be a little bit — how should I say — a bit inscrutable in the matter, I’ll say,” said Randall Sarafa, a Google spokesman. “The obvious thing is that, yeah, the Android platform releases, they go by dessert names and by alphabetical order for the most part."

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

Pokemon Go 0.33.0

All Pokemon go fans get ready because again the latest version of Pokemon go is out. The Niantic has released a new version of Pokemon go i.e. 0.33.0.The size of the new version is 61.48MB.

Lets talk STARS

Hey guys, have you ever spent any of your nights at the uncovered top floor or backyard of your house. If you have then this article will help know about all the things, you just observed out there in the space or even if you did not have this article will help you observe and understand all the miracles that happen in that huge space above us. In this one, we will talk about STARS- STARS There are about 6k-10k stars that a person with a normal eyesight can observe in that huge space.(well that number varies according to your eyesight) You might have observed or will observe that the stars in the space are not all the same in brightness and color. Well, the brightness of a star depends on the combination of 2 reasons.   The ACTUAL BRIGHTNESS -   Actual brightness of a star refers to the magnitude of real brightness that, that particular star have.You can think of that as energy.Different stars have different levels of energy(brightness).The star with more energy w
