Samsung’s Galaxy S10 may come with a cryptocurrency wallet

Samsung might be embracing crypto in a big way. 

Photos posted by leaker of mobile things Ben Geskin allegedly show a Samsung Galaxy S10 feature called the “Samsung Blockchain KeyStore,” which allows users to import a cryptocurrency wallet or create a new one. 

The feature is located in the phone’s “Biometrics and security” menu. Its description says “Samsung Blockchain KeyStore is a secure and convenient place for your cryptocurrency,” and it appears to support only Ethereum at the moment. 

The existence of such a feature was first reported by SamMobile, which claims the wallet will also support Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum-based ERC20 tokens. 

While there are plenty of third-party cryptocurrency wallets to choose from on Android, a built-in crypto wallet from Samsung is a pretty big deal. It comes at a time when several companies, including Sirin Labs, Sikur and HTC, are starting to sell cryptocurrency-oriented phones. And even though the crypto market is in a big slump, price-wise, things are moving forward in terms of development and adoption.

The new leak also gives us another good look at the phone, with the hole-punch camera clearly visible in the upper right corner. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, though, and Geskin didn’t share any additional new info about the phone. 

As for the S10’s specs and features, here’s a quick rundown: It’ll come in three sizes (see leaked photo above), with the most powerful of the bunch being a 6.4-inch phone with three rear cameras, a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) as part of a new Exynos chip, wireless charging, and an in-display fingerprint sensor, among other features.

We’ll learn more about the Galaxy S10 at Samsung’s Feb. 20 event in San Francisco.
