One Step Closer To Mass Adoption: Samsung Galaxy S10 Might Come With An Integrated Crypto Wallet
Samsung Galaxy S10 is the next flagship of the tech giant, and everyone’s waiting for its launch.
The device has been surrounded by various rumors lately, but this latest one managed to surprise the whole crypto community because it could support crypto adoption.
Samsung Galaxy S10 might support crypto mass adoption
The tech giant finally announced that it will present the smartphones soon, but it’s also important to note that back in December 2018, Samsung also revealed its plans to launch a blockchain smartphone.
After that, the tech giant confirmed that they would do this during their annual Samsung Unpacked event.
The phone is not out for the general public just yet, of course, but some of its features have been leaked by various sources.
For instance, Coinspeaker reveals that “the screenshot from the source for this leak has a converted height to width ratio of 2283 pixels by 1080 pixels. The device will feature two front-facing cameras.”
They continue and explain that “It is speculated that the Galaxy S10 features a 6.1-inch curved OLED display, an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Exynos 9820 processor (global), the Snapdragon 855 for North America, and either 128GB or 512GB of internal storage.”

Samsung Blockchain Wallet
The primary feature that interests us the most in this new model of Samsung is the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore that seems to be a blockchain wallet.
This can reportedly act as a secure and convenient place to hold your digital assets and it can enable users to own total control over their private keys and cryptos.
It’s also reported that users can create a new wallet.
The system works on the blockchain with the digital coins that Samsung will decide to support.
The leaked image shows that the Blockchain KeyStore currently lists only ETH as supported crypto. We’ll have to wait and see if this turns out accurate.
On the other hand, a report coming from SamMobile, says that Samsung’s blockchain wallet is also expected to support Bitcoin Cash at launch.

If Samsung’s next flagship does come with a mobile wallet implemented, considering the success that Samsung has with its smartphones, this would be a massive step towards mass adoption.
