Samsung will probably become one of the main supporters of crypto and blockchain tech in 2020. The latest move that the tech giant made supports this claim.
Samsung revealed the Galaxy S20 range, and the tech giant said that the phone’s security includes a new “secure processor dedicated to protecting your PIN, password, pattern, and Blockchain Private Key.”
Enhanced battery life and photo-taking capabilities
Samsung also addressed the S20’s enhanced battery life and the amazing picture-taking features. Still, the reference to private keys suggests that the new phones will have the very same crypto storage facilities that can be found in the previous models.
You may recall that Samsung added support for cryptos and the blockchain tech back in march 2018 when it integrated a wallet device into the model Galaxy S10.
After that, in July, the tech giant also introduces a developer’s kit that allowed third parties to create specially designed Dapps for the phone.
It’s interesting to note that one such dapp allows users to pay for goods and services in stored cryptos by simply scanning the QR code.
Back then, the wallet was only compatible with Ethereum and ER20 tokens.
After that, Samsung added support for Bitcoin in September and included TRON later that year in October.
“Although initially exclusive to the S10 range, the company said in May that it wanted to “lower barriers” and add cryptocurrency support for some of its more budget models,” Coindesk writes.
According to the online publication mentioned above, it seems that the S20 range is expected to go on sale on March 6.
