If you were hoping to pay for a few Christmas presents with your new Samsung Gear S2, you'll have to wait until next year. After pledging to deliver Samsung Pay to its latest smart watch in November, the company now says the mobile payments won't arrive on the NFC-equipped wearable until 2016. News of the delay comes from the US Samsung Mobile Twitter account in response to a customer looking for more information.

While no further details were offered, the company says we can expect to hear more info, but it didn't give a timetable for when that will happen. For Gear S2 owners who splurged for the wearable and it's ability to handle mobile payments, the delay will certainly be frustrating, especially with no timeframe for the feature's arrival.
