Samsung announced the launch of its new phone today in Seoul, San Francisco and London, which includes the Samsung Knox function. Per the press release:
According to an official press release on Feb. 20, “Galaxy S10 is built with defense-grade Samsung Knox, as well as a secure storage backed by hardware, which houses your private keys for blockchain-enabled mobile services.”
Other Smartphones With Crypto-Related Capabilities
Samsung is not the only major smartphone producer to have implemented crypto-related capabilities into smartphones. In May last year, Consumer electronics corporation HTC has unveiled “the first native blockchain phone,” HTC Exodus, which will launch with support for multiple blockchains, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum networks and features Brave as its default browser.
Also in December 2018, Sirin Labs launched Finney, the ‘world’s first’ blockchain smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 as well as S10+ and S10e can be pre-ordered now, with shipping scheduled to begin on 7 March.
Over at Samsung’s official website, the Galaxy S10 is available 128GB or 512GB storage for £799 and £999
