Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S20 smartphone range will contain a secure processor “dedicated to protecting your PIN, password, pattern and Blockchain Private Key.”
Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra smartphones have the function of storing Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other ERC20-based cryptocurrencies. To do this, the company introduced a processor in phones that can work with private keys from blockchain wallets, as reported on its official website.
Samsung first introduced Blockchain Keystore in early 2019. The app is available to users in the USA, Canada, South Korea, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Austria, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 is going to be the first 5G phone for a lot of people, and it comes with a 64MP camera and 3x optical and 30x digital zoom to boot. It’s a leap ahead of the S10, but it also carries a price hike and is outclassed by two bigger phones: the Galaxy S20 Plus and S20 Ultra.
