OnePlus launches OnePlus Pay on the OnePlus 7T series in China, may launch in India later this year
There is a variety of mobile payment solutions to choose from. The diverse options depend on your country, which bank account or credit card you have, or even based on your device. Over and above, there are several cross-platform wallet services that you can use for mobile payments. For Android devices, although Google already offers Google Pay in most countries, there are additional options offered by OEM themselves – including Samsung Pay and Xiaomi’s Mi Pay. Now, OnePlus is joining the club by introducing OnePlus Pay in China with the latest update for OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro.
OnePlus Pay makes way to the OnePlus 7T/7T Pro with the latest stable build of HydrogenOS (company’s China-specific ROM). Based on the screenshots, OnePlus Pay can be used for payments at POS machines, for subway and bus rides, toll taxes, and video service subscriptions. Additionally, you can buy tickets for air or long-distance train travel as well as medical insurance using the service and also subscribe to stocks.
For payments, OnePlus Pay apparently supports both card tokenization for tap-to-pay as well as QR code scanning. Other options like India’s Unified Payments Interface (UPI) may also be added when OnePlus Pay is available in other countries.
Although OnePlus Pay is launched in a stable build of HydrogenOS and not a beta, credit cards from only three banks are supported right now. The number might increase when the product is supported by other devices.
OnePlus first teased OnePlus Pay at the OnePlus 7T launch event in India last September. The company’s head of the Software Product Growth at that time, Szymon Kopec, notified the media professionals and fans attending the event that the service would be available “sometime next year” from then, noted Android Authority.
