While the first one needs upgraded terminals, MST was created to work with present ones which makes it compatible with each terminal, where you are able to swipe your bank card. The protection of the trade is ensured with Samsung Knox, fingerprint recognition and storage encryption.

Up to now, the smartphones that support it are the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, as well as the just-unveiled Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5.
