South Korean mobile giant Samsung has officially introduced a new line of premium smartphones: Galaxy S10, which will include secure storage for cryptocurrency private keys.
The company on Wednesday unveiled Galaxy S10 line, which it said, has been “engineered to meet the distinct needs of today’s smartphone market.” The press release states:
“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.”
According to the official website, the Knox platform consists of overlapping defense and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, and more malicious threats.
The company is going to launch four unique devices – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10 5G. It said:
“Each device delivers a next-generation experience in the categories consumers care about most: groundbreaking innovations in display, camera and performance.”
Last year, Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC unveiled a new Android phone which will be powered by blockchain technology. In October, it opened access to the first phone of the Exodus project, the ‘EXODUS 1’. Another company, Sirin Labs, launched its blockchain smartphone ‘FINNEY’ in November 2018.
