Samsung Pay app hints at U.S. launch for the Samsung Galaxy A50

Samsung has a history leaking its own products through app updates. This time, the upcoming U.S. launch of the Samsung Galaxy A50 is being hinted at through an update for the Samsung Pay app. The update notes for the app’s listing on the Google Play Store states that Samsung Pay now supports the “A50 US” which we presume to mean the U.S. Samsung Galaxy A50 – a smartphone that has yet to launch.

Samsung Pay app Galaxy A50 changelog

We’ve heard rumors that the Samsung Galaxy A50 will launch in the U.S. In fact, the presumed U.S. models for the Samsung Galaxy A20, A50, and A70 have all been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the U.S. Galaxy A50 has already been certified by the FCC. While the Samsung Pay app’s changelog doesn’t tell us if the device will launch on all 4 U.S. carriers, notable leaker Evan Blass says that it will. (Evan’s Twitter account is now private.) He shared a render of the device which shows the date June 21st, so that’s the likely U.S. launch date.
