As we know, the software section of Samsung is very big and great, the company has rolled out new features, fixes, improvements and much more with the OTA for older Galaxy devices. But what about the Galaxy Smartwatches? I am not targeting only the Galaxy Watch 4 series, the company has also lacked to send the new software update for the Galaxy Watch 5 series, which is the new generation wearable device of the company.
As we have seen, Samsung has rollout software updates every month for most of the Galaxy smartphones, in which the users have received new features, device stability improvements, monthly security patches and much more. On the other hand, the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 are not able to get the monthly patches.
However, they said that the Galaxy smartwatches do not require monthly patch updates. That is why there is no schedule by the company to roll out the firmware update for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 every month.

Samsung Pay will start charging credit card companies
Apple Pay launched in Korea, prompting Samsung Pay to shift its strategy. Samsung Pay is currently free for both consumers and credit card companies, but like Apple, Samsung also plans to start charging credit card companies.
Business Korea reported that Samsung Electronics informed all credit card companies in Korea that it will no longer offer Samsung Pay for free. Samsung Pay has been free for banks and Galaxy phone users since its launch in 2015, but Samsung will now begin charging credit card companies a small fee in South Korea, and this change is expected to apply to all markets worldwide where Samsung Pay is available.
Credit card companies, who have promoted Samsung Pay to over 16 million users for the past eight years, were reportedly surprised by Samsung’s decision to charge for the service. In response, they may have to reduce benefits provided to users to cut costs. While the South Korean government considers company contracts to be autonomous, it may intervene if the new charges are ultimately passed on to consumers.
Insiders in the financial industry are speculating that Samsung’s decision to charge for Samsung Pay may be linked to the recent launch of Apple Pay in South Korea. A credit card company executive suggested that Samsung may have felt compelled to act due to other credit card issuers planning to launch Apple Pay, and may have questioned why credit card companies should pay for the service when merchants already pay for Samsung Pay.
According to some analysts, Samsung may be attempting to leverage its decision to charge credit card companies for Samsung Pay as a negotiating tactic to pressure those who have not yet adopted Apple Pay. However, a representative from Samsung Electronics stated that no final decision has been made regarding Samsung Pay. Market analysts predict that Samsung will initiate negotiations with credit card companies on this matter by August 10th.
According to reports from various news sources, Samsung is taking steps to counter the competition from Apple Pay in South Korea. One such measure is the collaboration between Samsung Pay and Naver Pay, which will allow users to make online payments through Samsung Pay. In addition, Samsung is planning to activate Samsung Pay on the Galaxy Watch in South Korea to compete with Apple Pay. These moves are seen as part of Samsung’s strategy to maintain its position in the mobile payment market in the face of increasing competition.
