Samsung is apparently discussing the ins and outs of mobile payment with PayPal with a view to launching the so-called Samsung Pay alongside the Galaxy S6 next week. With Apple already in the mobile payment market with Apple Pay, it seems that now is the right time for Google to enter the fray too. The Search giants will apparently announce Android Pay at the Google I/O developer conference in May.

Wait a minute, doesn't the company already have Google Wallet? Well yes, and that service will probably continue to exist too, and users will be able to link accounts from Google Wallet to Android Pay. One advantage the new system will have is the ability to move around Google Wallet and register directly to Android Pay with a bank card.

It is worth stressing that Android Pay does not seem as robust as Apple Pay or Samsung's upcoming service.
