Samsung didn’t say much about Galaxy S10’s Blockchain feature during the much-anticipated presentation. However, a new leaked video provides more insights into what cryptocurrency enthusiasts can expect from the top-of-the-line smartphone.
🇰🇷 - Samsung now priming their phones with Blockchain tutorials. The wallet integration on the Galaxy S10 has been confirmed... even after they denied it. Trying to keep Apple on their toes? pic.twitter.com/wAd7EaPzKw— Korean Cryptocurrency & Blockchain News (@BlockchainROK) February 21, 2019
Very few details are available
As U.Today reported earlier, Samsung was supposed to integrate a cryptocurrency wallet into its new flagship product Galaxy S10 (Blockchain Keystore was among three possible trade marks). Instead, the South Korean mobile giant debuted a functioin for private key storage that could be used for Blockchain-based mobile services. Hence, the previously leaked photos that allegedly depicted Galaxy S10 with a native crypto wallet that suppports BTC and ETH are most likely fake.
The company didn’t confirm or deny what specific currencies the new flagship smartphone will support. They dedicated only one sentence to the whole topic during the Galaxy UNPACKED event that took place on Feb. 20.
Blockchain tutorials for propelling the adoption
The new leaked video with Blockchain tutorials has recenlty appeared online. While the legitimacy of this video can could be called into question, it vividly shows that the smartphone’s Blockchain wallet will indeed support two major currencies — BTC and ETH. We will get to know whether it’s true or not once the phone appears in stores on March 8.
