HUAWEI P50 Series are the latest smartphones to get NFC mobile payments in the United Kingdom
London, United Kingdom, Monday 24th January 2021 – NFC contactless payment is now widely available on Huawei smartphones, including the Huawei P50 Series. Huawei has partnered with Curve – the financial super app which combines all of your debit, credit and loyalty cards into one, easy-to-use smart card – to launch Curve Pay so Huawei customers can pay by phone through one digital wallet.
The release of the Huawei P50 series will be the latest smartphone to benefit from Curve and Curve Pay, the feature that uses NFC technology to enable contactless smartphone payments. In addition to the P50 series, Curve Pay, will also work with the recently launched Nova 9, and other HMS Smartphones across Europe.
Huawei users will now have one digital wallet for all their cards, with access to cashback options from hundreds of popular brands and a 360˚ view of all spending with useful insights, budget and control settings, all available in numerous currencies. In addition to these features, Huawei customers will also be able to access fair exchange rates with no hidden fees, allowing them to travel with confidence when it comes to their money.
Unlike other mobile wallets, should Huawei users decide they have paid via the wrong card, they can move past payments from one account to another through Curve’s “Go Back In Time” feature. Plus, the Curve app features an “anti-embarrassment” mode which will automatically switch cards if the selected card is declined.
The move by Curve and Huawei is part of the companies’ core goal of helping more people to pay by phone in 2022 and beyond. With Curve Pay the final piece of the puzzle for developing the Huawei Mobile ecosystem of apps.
All Huawei users in Europe can now download Curve on the AppGallery and enter the world of NFC-enabled contactless mobile phone payments. As a welcome offer, Curve and Huawei will be offering new users 1% cashback on almost any payment for 30 days across Europe and 5% cashback from all purchases on Huawei’s online stores in Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and the UK.
Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve, comments: “We’re on a mission to simplify people’s financial lives and launching Curve Pay for Huawei customers allows us to help even more people, across Europe, do just that. Everybody should be able to access smart payment solutions and we’re proud to support more people with contactless payments, rewards and ultimately, simplicity and convenience.”
“Huawei users can now pay by phone, it’s as simple as that. We now have a proven, easy to use and highly functional mobile payment solution, which is bank and card agnostic, making it ideal for our consumers, dispersed in so many different countries in Europe” said Jervis Su, Vice President of Mobile Services, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “This is particularly great news for HUAWEI P50 Series and Nova 9 Series users who can access the app now and immediately start making use of their smartphone to make NFC-enabled contactless payments”.
