Will the Samsung Galaxy S10 come cryptocurrency-ready?

Will the Samsung Galaxy S10 come cryptocurrency-ready?

The A8s was originally released in China in late 2018, but it now looks like Samsung is gearing up for the global launch of the device with the expansion to South Korea. For those keeping score, the Galaxy S9 has a single rear camera, while the Galaxy S9+ features dual rear cameras. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is expected to be officially announced in about four weeks in the prelude to Mobile World Congress.

But Samsung has now explained that this will allow the S10 and other phones using this chipset to implement AI anywhere, anytime, potentially allowing for better battery efficiency, lower latency, and improvements to things like augmented reality and the camera.

On the rear of the device, buyers can expect a triple camera setup to be in effect comprised of a 24-megapixel lens accompanied by 10 and 5-megapixel solutions.

The phone thus comes with the front-facing camera embedded into the glass, and the screen features a display ratio of 19.5:9.

Samsung hasn't revealed much details of the phone yet.

For example, we already know that the Exynos 9820 can carry out AI tasks seven times faster than its predecessor, thanks to an integrated NPU (neural processing unit).

The original Galaxy S launched in June 2010, and in the nine years since then smartphones went from a device reserved for tech enthusiasts looking for the next big thing, to becoming an everyday item people can not live without.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro follows on from the Galaxy A9 which was launched in late 2018. Since Samsung is also working on updated IconX wireless earbuds and a refreshed Gear Fit fitness tracker, it is also possible to see them all arriving at a separate event, maybe at MWC 2019, which kicks off on February 25. About a week ago, an employee's phone was spotted being used on the bus, and we just saw a photo of an S10 with an apparent "Blockchain KeyStore" yesterday.
