We’ve been hearing rumors about a Pixel Watch for a while, which originated as rumors of a Nexus Watch way, way back. But up to this point, Google has never actually made their own smartwatch like they’ve done with phones and tablets. They’ve left Wear OS to third-party partners, for better or worse. Unfortunately for […]

LG has just confirmed that it’s currently working on a mobile payment system, which it hopes will challenge both Android and Samsung Pay. Unfortunately, no details were given with regards to when the service will launch, but recent speculation suggests that there will be an opt-in public beta test in South Korea next month.
Judging from the details provided by LG in its official statement, it looks like its payment platform is set to support MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) and NFC (Near Field Communication), which will deliver an identical tap-to-pay experience to Samsung Pay. However, LG claims its service will excel in terms of software.
Not only is it boasting that the service will be more convenient than its competitors, but the South Korean company also claims that it will be more versatile and functional due to the application’s extremely intuitive, easy-to-use interface.
LG owners: Are you excited to hear that the company is working on its own payment platform? Are you planning on using it? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
