Samsung might launch its own blockchain wallet alongside the Galaxy S10

In addition to the wallet, these leaked images also provide some of the clearest visuals yet of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10.

Pictures posted by concept designer Ben Geskin on Twitter show off Samsung’s rumored cryptocurrency service, along with a clear image of the Galaxy S10.

The Samsung Blockchain KeyStore looks to be a blockchain wallet, which you’ll be able to either import an existing wallet or create a new wallet. According to the images, the Blockchain KeyStore only lists Ethereum as a supported cryptocurrency.

That said, a previous report from SamMobile claims that Samsung’s blockchain wallet will also support Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum-derived token ERC20 at launch.

The report also claims that Samsung won’t have access to any of the data in the Blockchain KeyStore app, which might be a cold wallet. The main way to recover your data is with the 12 to 24-word recovery phrase. The app also features a secondary layer of authentication that includes PIN and fingerprint.

The images also give us the clearest visuals of the regular Galaxy S10. The phone in the images is unlikely to be the Galaxy S10 Plus, since that device will reportedly feature two front-facing cameras.

According to rumors, 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. The phone could sell for at least 799 euros (~$1,009) when it launches.

Samsung will have much to say about the Galaxy S10 on February 20, when the company will hold an Unpacked event in San Francisco.
