On August 22nd, Samsung officially announced the release of its much-hyped, long-awaited Galaxy Note 10. On Friday, August 23rd, the device was launched in over 70 countries including the US and Canada.
This is not particularly important news to the blockchain community but for the promise of the integration of a blockchain wallet which will allow cryptocurrency holders to secure their cryptocurrencies and interact with several blockchains from the mobile device blockchain wallet app.
Though the device has launched, it appears as though Samsung still has a few things to put in place before it can unlock its value for crypto holders.
Samsung Fails To Deliver A Blockchain Wallet With Their Note 10
The Samsung Wallet app had been expected in their earlier Samsung Galaxy S10 release.
Following the release of Samsung’s mobile device, Samsung Galaxy S10 in February, the company had promised to launch its Galaxy Note 10 with an integrated ‘Blockchain Keystore’ and ‘Blockchain Wallet’. Keystore is software that keeps your cryptocurrency account’s secret key secure. The wallet is the bridge between this Keystore and several blockchain apps.
Users can create a new account or import an existing wallet account through the Keystore, but they are unable to search the Galaxy App Store for the Wallet app to link it. When the download link is accessed, they are notified that the content is not currently available on their phone.
When To Except A Samsung Blockchain Wallet
According to a Samsung galaxy consultant who reached out to Samsung’s technical team said,
“Wallet is an app that works with external coins, so we will start updating after the secure version is released.”
