    In order to buy an international S20 ultra 5g and use it in europe (france), I am wondering if flashing the device with a french firmaware could allow me to use it without issues, above all use samsung pay (I'm becoming blind and using card terminal in shops is sometime really tricky) ?

    While technically possible, you have to make sure the hardware is 100% compatible with the firmware you're flashing (otherwise you'll have other issues and potential risk of bricking your device). Bear in mind, however, that most secure NFC payment services WILL NOT WORK if they detect a modified device/OS for security reasons, so if you want this for Samsung Pay, chances are that will detect it and will not work for payments. Have you tried other NFC methods (like Google Pay or PayPal)?
