Photos of the Samsung Galaxy S10 have leaked, giving us another look at the upcoming flagship and its hole-punch display. This model has just a single front camera in its hole-punch, suggesting that this is the standard Galaxy S10 model.
Today’s images also show a “Samsung Blockchain KeyStore”. According to the device, the app will offer a “secure and convenient place for your cryptocurrency”. The photos show that the app supports Ethereum (ETH), and in the phone’s settings we can see a way to “secure and manage your blockchain private key”.
We’ve gotten a few looks at the Galaxy S10 and its hole-punch display lately, but these new photos give us a pretty good look at the screen and its front camera. The hole-punch is notable because it’s becoming a new trend in smartphones and because Samsung avoided the notch on its Galaxy S flagships, but it looks like the company will embrace the hole-punch with the S10, possibly as a way to further slim the bezels surrounding the screen.
Also of note is the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore shown in these images. There haven’t been a ton of blockchain and cryptocurrency-focused phones and apps from major smartphone makers, though HTC did sell a blockchain-centric device last year. Now it appears that Samsung will be trying to get in on the trend and make its new phone a bit more appealing to those who are into cryptocurrency.
What do you think of hole-punch displays like the one found on the Galaxy S10?
