Samsung is soon to make its most-anticipated Galaxy S10 series official. With rumors joining the rumor mill each day, the most recent one hints at a possible new feature by the company.
According to a tweet by tipster Ben Geskin, the South Korean company is likely to launch its blockchain wallet for cryptocurrency along with the 2019 flagships, proving the previous rumors right.
The leaked images hint at the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore which is expected to be a cold wallet for improved security to store cryptocurrency along with public and private keys.

Additionally, it is suggested that Samsung’s blockchain wallet will support Ethereum cryptocurrency, with other supported cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and more joining the league.
It is also suggested that users will be able to import their existing wallets, as well as create a new wallet altogether.
However, we don’t know yet whether the Galaxy S10 will be the only model to get hold of the new wallet or it will reach other smartphones as well.
As for the future smartphones, we are likely to see four; the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus, the Galaxy S10 Lite, and a 5G variant as well.
The smartphones are expected to feature Samsung’s proprietary Infinity-O display and could come in two processor variants: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9820.
As a reminder, there is no confirmation at the time of writing, therefore, we need to wait for Samsung’s Unpacked event, scheduled for February 20, to get a conclusive idea.
