61 Samsung smartphones may be prohibited in Russia. Banned
Samsung has filed an appeal against the decision, and the court’s decision is not yet binding. Therefore Samsung is not yet bound by the ruling, so the Korean brand isn’t legally bound to restrict the selling and import of its handsets at present. There is no information on the exact models subject to the ban; however, considering that the affected models are 61 and that all new Samsung smartphones are equipped with its mobile payment feature, it is likely that all new models will be affected by the ban.
Based on Counterpoint Research, Samsung Pay is the third most-used payment method that is not a contactless one in Russia and accounts for 17.5% of all transactions, behind Google Pay (32 per cent) and Apple Pay (30 per cent). It is yet to be determined if the justice system will also hold Apple and Google accountable and block their respective payment platforms shortly.
Last year, Samsung lost its position as the top smartphone manufacturer in its Russian phone market to Xiaomi.
