Chinese tech behemoth Huawei has launched its mobile payment service Huawei Pay in Singapore in partnership with UnionPay, China’s state-owned bank-card issuer.

The city-state’s Huawei Pay users can now make contactless payments by tapping their smartphones on point-of-sale (POS) machines, Huawei said in a Friday statement.

To use the service, customers first need to link their cards to Huawei Wallet, an app that comes preinstalled on Huawei’s newly launched P40 smartphones. Users of older Huawei and Honor handsets can also download the app from Huawei’s AppGallery store.

Huawei Pay uses biometric authentication methods such as facial and fingerprint recognition to enhance payment security, the statement said.

Currently, the service is only available to holders of UnionPay credit cards issued by the Singapore arm of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.

In December 2018, Huawei, in partnership with UnionPay, launched Huawei Pay in Russia, making it the first market outside China to offer the service. Huawei Pay was first launched on the Chinese mainland in August 2016.
