As spotted on SIRIM’s certification, it appears that the Galaxy A70 for Malaysia does not come with NFC, and that means it won’t be supporting Samsung Pay. If you’re looking for a mid-range device with Samsung Pay, you could consider the Galaxy A9 (2018) which is currently going for RM1,399. It comes with a 6.3″ Full HD+ display, a Snapdragon 660 processor and it has a quad-camera setup for the rear.
