According to CoinDesk, a report out of Korea claims that LG is having difficulty separating its model from Samsung’s previous releases, which included its Galaxy S10 in multiple models complete with its Blockchain Keystore.
“LG has been struggling to apply blockchain to smartphones without any dissimilarity,” a Chosun source said. “I think Samsung is trying to prepare differently in the blockchain field, just as LG responded with a dual-screen when Samsung Galaxy came out with a foldable phone.”
