It was reported last month that Samsung would be launching a cryptocurrency service with its Galaxy S10 model. Now, there are several live images leaked online that showcase a Samsung Blockchain KeyStore app. The cryptocurrency service was divided into two parts, that is, a cold wallet for saving digital currencies, public and private keys, and signing private keys for transactions. Also, there was reportedly an availability of a crypto wallet in order to view account information, transfers and transaction history.
According to the Samsung Galaxy S10 leaked pictures, the smartphone is going to have a Blockchain KeyStore app running on it. The app is also expected to let users import an existing wallet and at the same time, create a new one. The support for cryptocurrency is going to be Ethereum, however it is only going to have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ER20 and Bitcoin Cash during the launch. In the Samsung Galaxy S10, if you go to settings>biometrics and security, you are going to find a relevant menu item for Blockchain KeyStore.
One observation on the basis of which it can be ascertained that the device is the Galaxy S10 and not the Galaxy S10+ is how the camera looks and is placed. There are minimal bezels due to which there is a larger screen space. This, users might find very appealing. A few days ago, there were a few leaked renders that showed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 is going to have a fingerprint scanner as its ‘unlock option’. There was another leak by TuttoAndroid two-to-three days ago that tipped about the storage of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy S10+.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 will come in 6GB RAM along with 12GB on-board storage and 8GB RAM along with 512GB on-board storage. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ will again have 6GB and 8GB RAM variants that will come with 128GB and 512GB internal storage respectively. Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, unlike the other two will come with a single 6GB RAM variant with an internal storage of 128GB.
