Samsung took the wraps off their newest smartphone venture that will almost undoubtedly appear as part of the Galaxy S4 launch, it’s called “Wallet.” As the name suggests, it’s a mobile wallet of sorts, though at this time it’s more like Apple’s Passbook than a mobile payment system in that it stores tickets or membership cards instead of credit cards.
