When folks at SamMobile reported last month that Samsung would launch its own cryptocurrency wallet with the Galaxy S10, the Korean company dismissed it as “rumor and speculation.” Newly leaked pictures of Galaxy S10 suggest the device will indeed have a built-in cryptocurrency wallet called the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore app.
The leaked images also show off the punch-hole display to accommodate the front-facing camera. There is only a single hole on the display, meaning it’s the Galaxy S10 rather than the larger S10 Plus, which would have dual cameras on the front. Samsung introduced the punch-hole Infinity-O display with the Galaxy A8 in China recently. Other vendors like Huawei have also adopted a similar technology on their newer devices such as the Honor View 20 and Nova 4.
Samsung Blockchain KeyStore to be highly secure
The latest leak comes via Twitter tipsters Gregory Blake and Ben Geskin, and was first spotted by SamMobile. As per the images, Samsung describes its native cryptocurrency wallet on the splash page as a “secure and convenient place for your cryptocurrency.” The Samsung Blockchain KeyStore will not only allow users to create new wallets but also import existing ones.

The splash page shows it would support Ethereum, but SamMobile noted that it’s going to support other virtual currencies as well including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum-derived ERC20, and more. The Samsung Blockchain KeyStore app is said to have two parts. There will be a crypto wallet for viewing your account information, transaction history, and transfers. The second part, a cold wallet, would save your digital currencies, private and public keys, and sign private keys for transactions.
