New Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone to feature built-in cryptocurrency wallet?

"If Samsung integrates crypto to Galaxy S10, I think it may have a bigger impact than ETF and Bakkt combined", Mr Young said.

Reportedly, Samsung had filed for three trademarks under "Smartphones; Software applications for use with mobile devices; Computer software platforms; Application".

Rumors regarding the inclusion of crypto functionality on Samsung's latest flagship smartphone have been floating around for a couple of months. The smartphone will be powered by 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of internal storage along with a 3,400mAh battery. In the same way Samsung argues this is the first phone to come with the company's Infinity-O display, the Galaxy A9 was released as the first to come featuring four rear cameras.

When it comes to Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 family of smartphones, we've hit the jackpot today. The device will be up for grabs for 599,500 won, which is roughly $550.

Previous leaks in December had implied that Samsung's Galaxy S10 would include a wallet app with two parts: 1) a cold wallet for storing cryptocurrency and private keys and 2) a hot wallet for crypto transactions.

As for the specifications, most of the phone's specs are same as the Galaxy A8s. However, starting in Q2 2013, when the smartphone market began to boom, Samsung has shipped over 70 million units per quarter, totaling almost 300 million smartphones shipped each year. The bad news is it may be for South Korea only. It features a 6.4-inch display with 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Since Samsung is also working on updated IconX wireless earbuds and a refreshed Gear Fit fitness tracker, it is also possible to see them all arriving at a separate event, maybe at MWC 2019, which kicks off on February 25.

Since it's the CPU which needs to be 5G capable it seems likely that Samsung is going to use its own Exynos chipsets for the 5G super-powers. The next generation smartphone is getting ready to be announced but on Twitter, one user showed an image of the device along with the blockchain news.
