No, the Galaxy S10 will not ship with a cryptocurrency "cold wallet"

No, the Galaxy S10 will not ship with a cryptocurrency

This time it seems like the + variant of S10 will feature not only three cameras on the back but also two on the front. As per Gizmodo, a design and technology website, a "major tech retailer" has spilled most of the beans regarding the phone.

Huawei's Mate 20 Pro comes with wireless reverse charging, and this feature is said to be present on the Galaxy S10 series smartphones as well. Their new phone, the Samsung Galaxy A8s, ditched the traditional 3.5 mm audio port, leaving users to either use a Bluetooth or USB-C pair or use a USB-C-to-3.5 mm adapter. Those jokes will pack a little less punch now that Samsung has launched the Galaxy A8s, a phone with the new Infinity-O display, triple rear camera and zero headphone jacks. To make things even more interesting, Samsung has always criticized Apple for overpricing its products and from the looks of it, Samsung has forgotten about that.

Now, Gizmodo has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will launch on February 20, 2019 at a Samsung Unpacked event. It is likely to sport all of 6.7 inches real estate in the display with no notch or hole and the 3D ultrasonic fingerprint sensor beneath the screen.

This handset, codenamed "Beyond 0" inside the company, will purportedly cost £669 for 128GB of in-built storage - just £30 more than the entry-level Galaxy S8 when it launched. Adnan Farooqui, the senior executive editor at SamMobile, was quoted as saying that "after hearing about the trademarks for Samsung's blockchain and cryptocurrency software, we made a decision to dig around a little deeper". If so, we've got some good news for you, because we may now know the date on which Samsung will officially announce its next flagship smartphone. Presently, it is unclear how many models will be marketed under the Galaxy S10 name. The Korean company is introducing the lower-specced Galaxy S10 Lite to compete with the likes of OnePlus 6T and Xiaomi's Pocophone. It is expected to house four cameras in the rear. The Galaxy S10 128 GB variant will be priced at £799 (around ₹72,166), whereas the 512 GB variant will be priced at £999 (around ₹90,230).
