You will, however, be able to turn it off/disable it if you don't want to pursue the path of rooting your phone. Rooting your phone will void your warranty!

Please note that Samsung Pay is only available in certain countries, and only available on certain Samsung devices, so only those specific devices in those countries will even have Samsung pre-installed on their device.
