Huawei Pay could compete with Android Pay in USA soon

Huawei Pay is now only available in China and supports a small list of banks. However, the recent trademark filings suggest that the company wants its mobile payments service to widely available. Its still too early to know if Huawei plans to mimic the magnetic strip of a credit card, but one thing that it is doing differently is the ability to pay other people. The Chinese firm is yet to make an official announcement on expanding the Huawei Pay service in multiple markets.

While Samsung, Apple, and Google have their mobile payment tech for some time now, recently LG also introduced LG PAY in South Korea. Also unknown at the moment is whether Huawei has signed up with any US banks to support the service. In addition to making purchases using Huawei Pay, money can be transferred to another Huawei Pay user by putting two phones together.
