LG Pay Coming to Low-End Smartphones, More Markets in 2018

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • LG Pay service to be available on more LG phones
  • The service was limited to LG G6 so far
  • The company has also confirmed service expansion to more markets

LG’s mobile payments service, LG Pay, is all set to expand to more smartphones and new markets next year. The company has finally confirmed its plan which means that LG’s new payment service will go head-on with rival services like Samsung Pay and Apple Pay in international markets.

The company has revealed plans to bring its LG Pay service to “low-budget smartphones” next year. Apart from affordable mobiles, the service is also said to expand to online shopping malls. To recall, the LG Pay mobile payments service was launched in South Korea last month.

LG Pay uses Wireless Magnetic Communication technology unlike Magnetic Secure Transmission technology used by rival service Samsung Pay (which also supports NFC). Apple Pay only supports NFC.LG Pay Coming to Low-End Smartphones, More Markets in 2018

“We will expand the use of LG Pay into low-budget smartphones alongside premium phones next year,” Cho Jun-ho, President of LG’s Mobile Communication Division was quoted saying at an event in South Korea. Unfortunately, the company is yet to announce the smartphones that will get the support for its LG Pay service.

The report adds that the number of LG Pay users stood at 95,000 compared to Samsung Pay’s 5.2 million users citing a local research firm Wiseapp.

As announced before, the LG Pay service is supported by the company’s flagship, the LG G6. Now, the South Korean giant had said that it would expand the service to more devices.

The LG Pay service requires the user’s fingerprint for every single transaction and thereby has been claimed to improve security while transacting.

 

New Nokia Smartphones Will Be Sold in U.S. Market

 

With excitement building among rabid Nokia phones fans for the brand’s imminent global revival as an Android smartphone maker, there’s a bit of confusion about just where the new line of devices will be sold.

But U.S. fans should not fret. The new line will be available here soon.

HMD Global, the Finnish start up that licensed the brand, last month unveiled three new, low-cost smartphone models and a modernized candy bar phone—a reprise of famous Nokia 3310—with a promise to start selling them in 120 markets in the second quarter. After questions about which countries would be included and when—and with some low-end phone maker forsaking the U.S. market—the company said last week in a brief statement that the phones would be sold worldwide all at once.

At the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona last month, some HMD officials were even clearer that the U.S. market was on their list for immediate sales. Although the startup has been in business for less than a year, it’s filled with longtime Nokia veterans from the decades when the company was the top phone brand in the world.

“The U.S. is a very important market for us, so when we say that we’ll go worldwide, we’ll go in more than 120 markets including of course also U.S.,” Pekka Rantala, HMD’s chief marketing officer, told Fortune at MWC.

Rantala spent 17 years at Nokia, rising to head of marketing. He left when the business was sold to Microsoft (MSFT, +0.23%) and then ran Rovio Entertainment, creator of the popular Angry Birds mobile game, before joining HMD last August.

There’s a lot of excitement for the Nokia revival in the United States, according to tracking of mentions on social media and other indicators, Rantala said. And when Nokia made its old school Snake video game available to play via Facebook Messenger, the largest number of players were from the United States, he added.

The startup can pull off the simultaneous global rollout because HMD has so many experienced people on staff from the old Nokia (NOK, +1.69%) days, he said.

“They have the relationships when it comes to both a professional and also personal level in many parts of the world,” Rantala said. “Many people are asking at which countries do you start. I think we start everywhere, because we have the readiness and we have partners who can supply us.”

The new phone line, which is manufactured by a unit of iPhone-maker Foxconn, starts with the Nokia 6 with a 5.5-inch screen and selling for 229 euros, or about $242. A slightly smaller Nokia 5, with a 5.2-inch screen, will go for 189 euros, or $200, and 5-inch model called the Nokia 3 will sell for just 139 euros or under $150. All three models rely on Google’s (GOOGL, -0.20%) Android software.

Nokia Smartphones Primed for a Smartphone Comeback
Nokia may be making a comeback in 2017!

More models at higher and lower prices will be forthcoming eventually, Rantala said. “I’m not saying when, but it’s clear that we are going to evolve the portfolio downwards and upwards because the brand gives is permission to be present in all the price points,” he said.

Samsung looks beyond smartphones to next-gen biologics

 

The Samsung group diversified into the pharmaceutical sector in 2011. Now, it’s mobilising its expertise in semiconductor making and engineering know-how to make the way biologics are produced on behalf of Big Pharma more efficient. Photo: Bloomberg

The Samsung brand is best known for its smartphones and wide-screen TVs. Yet behind the scenes, the conglomerate is also making a name as a contract manufacturer of complex medicines to treat diseases like cancer.
On a piece of reclaimed land along the western coast of South Korea, Samsung BioLogics Co. is building a $740 million factory that will give it the capacity to become the No. 1 producer by volume of a class of drugs called biologics, many of which are derived from mammal cells.
The Samsung group diversified into the pharmaceutical sector in 2011. Now, it’s mobilising its expertise in semiconductor making and engineering know-how to make the way biologics are produced on behalf of Big Pharma more efficient. The market for biologic medicines, which are used for everything from cancer to arthritis, is projected to exceed $223.7 billion by 2021, according to a Bloomberg Intelligence analysis.
Being a force in biologics is crucial to Samsung — and South Korea. Galaxy smartphones and other consumer electronics face intense competition from Apple and Chinese brands such as Huawei Technologies, and the chaebol is grappling with the arrest of de facto leader Jay Y Lee in a scandal that brought down the country’s former president. Meanwhile, the broader economy needs new industries as shipbuilding and heavy manufacturing slow.
If the past 40 years of global economic growth were fuelled by technology, said Kim Tae-han, chief executive officer of Samsung BioLogics, the next will be fuelled by where that converges with health care.
In an interview at company headquarters in Incheon, Kim said he is preparing to ramp up production and is in negotiations for more than 15 new contracts. The Samsung board gave him the green light and $2 billion to start the business about six years ago. Yet, on the strength of demand and business performance, “I’ve already spent $3 billion!’’ Kim said. Sales totalled 107.6 billion won ($96 million) in the first quarter, a 2.1 per cent increase from a year earlier, though the unit still posted a net loss.
More than 2,000 construction workers — most with experience building semiconductor facilities — are buzzing around the factory site about an hour’s drive from Seoul. It is called Edison and is the company’s third drug facility. Its five floors encompass 34 meters (112 feet), making way for custom-made vats that are so big some shoot through several floors.Samsung, pharmaceutical
Biologic drugs are grown from cells. That necessitates a more complex manufacturing process than typical pills — a mixture of chemicals — but makes biologics more effective and capable of being targeted toward certain diseases.
Building a biologic plant is similar to one for semiconductors. There are clean rooms that cannot tolerate dust or other contamination, so Edison is being built without nuts or bolts to prevent any drilling. As such, everything is welded and tilted to fit together. One day, Kim said, “contract manufacturing” could extend to helping clients build the factories.
“We know how to optimise that process,” Kim said, citing the experience in semiconductors. “We could be competitive in quality, speed and cost.”
Samsung already is a contract manufacturer for some blockbuster drugs, including for Switzerland’s Roche Holding AG and the US’s Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. It will take three years for the plant to ramp up to full capacity after being completed this year and opening at the end of 2018, Kim said.
At its Incheon facilities, staff are on site 24 hours a day to ensure continuity: researchers in white smocks spend the day monitoring the production process, checking on centrifuges or poring over data on computer monitors. English is the working language and some are alums of Genentech Inc. or Amgen Inc., the US-based biotechnology giants. It has 1,700 employees, and their average age is 28, the youngest in the Samsung affiliates.
Globally, the drug industry produces 4 million liters of biologic drugs a year, and that’s projected to double by 2030, Kim said. With its new plant, Samsung BioLogics is positioning itself to double its market share. Shares are up 24 per cent this year to 187,000 won. That compares with a 13 per cent increase in the benchmark Kospi index.
Kim’s company faces some formidable competitors, who are also expanding. Switzerland’s Lonza Group AG and Germany’s Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH have long histories in the biologics contract manufacturing business, and Japan’s Fujifilm Holdings also entered the business.
“We are aware of expansions and further investments in mammalian cell culture capacities by Big Pharma and contract manufacturers worldwide,” Boehringer Ingelheim said in a statement. It’s investing almost $767 million to build a production facility in Vienna that will create about 500 jobs, the company said in an email.
Fujifilm is investing 14 billion yen ($123 million) to accelerate its drug-manufacturing capacity in the US and UK, it said in April. Through subsidiary Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, it’s targeting revenue of 100 billion yen for the contract development and manufacturing business by March 2024, it said in an email. Lonza declined to comment.
