A new year means a new line of phones with updated technology and features. Samsung, a South Korean international conglomerate, has been working on a new line of phones to release sometime this year; however, it’s been leaked by the Twitter user, Gregory Blake (@GregiPfister89), that one of their newest products contains a built-in wallet for crypto, which would accept Ethereum (ETH).

Blake posted three photos on his Twitter account, all showing different aspects of the crypto wallet. The first photo shows a full phone with the screen’s page titled, “set up your wallet.” There are two options underneath, which give the options of importing an existing wallet or creating a new wallet, in the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore.

The second photo shows the same phone with a screen of the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore. The screen says the store is a “secure and convenient place” to store crypto.

The third photo shows a screengrab of a page titled, “Biometrics and Security,” which has several options, one being the KeyStore.

Samsung is having an event, “Unpacked,” on Feb. 20 where one of their newer smartphone models, allegedly foldable, will be showcased.
