A leaked image, a couple of weeks back, showed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will come with Samsung Blockchain KeyStore. The credibility of this leaked image is also backed by a trademark that has been filed by Samsung with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In the patent filing, the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore has been described as:

“software for use with mobile devices and smartphones, namely, software for the storage and management of private keys to authenticate blockchain transactions.”

Though the leaked image shows support for Ethereum cryptocurrency only, reports say support for other cryptocurrencies will be available over time. Once you have your own Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone, you can share the public key of your crypto wallet receiving, spending, or holding cryptocurrencies.
