Latest Galaxy S10 leak shows off hole-punch camera and crypto wallet
Samsung’s next big launch will be a 10-year anniversary device, and thanks to a new leak, we have a better idea of what to expect from it.
Images have surfaced online showing not only the flagship phone’s interesting hole-punch display, which seems to be a hot trend for 2019, but also a first look at Samsung’s new Blockchain KeyStore app. The images, published by Twitter user Ben Geskin, were first noticed by SamMobile.
Starting with the hole-punch display, it’s called the “Infinity-O”. We first saw it on Samsung’s A8 phones in China. Now, many companies are adopting the design choice over a notch, including Huawei with the Nova 4 and the recently released Honor View 20. As you can see in the leak, Samsung’s camera is in the far right corner of the display, rather than in the centre, and it’s surrounded by super-slim bezels.
As for the native cryptocurrency wallet app, it is described here as a “secure and convenient place for your cryptocurrency”. It will offer Galaxy users the ability to import and use cryptocurrencies, like Ethereum, as well as use biometric authentication for identity verification.
This is the first we’ve heard of Samsung’s foray into such a wallet, but we’ll likely learn all the details, including more about the Galaxy S10, at Samsung’s Unpacked event on 20 February ahead of MWC 2019. We’re also expecting to see Samsung’s foldable phone again while at the show.
