The card which looks like a normal card includes a small LCD screen, and two buttons at the right bottom that allow users to select between cards they want to use to make transaction. White card will also allow users to store loyalty cards like Costa Coffee Club Card etc. The card will be powered by a charging connector.

"Unlike Samsung Pay, card companies can manage everything on LG Pay since transactions do not go through LG Electronics' server and it is a platform that has many advantages for finance companies." said a representative for one of LG Pay's partner.

LG is currently testing the payments with many VAN companies for smooth payment linkage and is planning to introduce the product at Mobile World Congress 2016 that will be held next month.
