US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Huawei, following Apple, will issue a branded credit card. This statement was made by the head of Huawei consumer business, Richard Yu, at a press conference on the launch of the flagship Huawei P40 smartphone line in China.
The Huawei Card will be a lot like Apple’s counterpart, Engadget reports . The card will be issued in both physical and virtual form, and all data will be stored in a secure area of the device – in the same place where mobile payments are processed. NFC contactless payment support has also been announced.
The transaction will be processed by UnionPay – the largest Chinese payment system.
To attract customers faster, Huawei will not charge for the first year of service. For those who spend a certain amount through the Huawei Pay payment function, the second year will also be free.
The launch date of the Huawei Card will be clarified later.
The annual interest rate is from 12.99 to 24.24%. For purchases, 2% of the cashback is credited, for goods purchased from Apple (including digital in the App Store), 3% is returned.
If desired, the user can order a physical Apple Card made of titanium. An NFC chip is built into such a credit card for making contactless payments without the participation of a smartphone.
