The release of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 has not been without it’s share of problems such as the leaked press release which gave away vital information regarding Samsung’s collaboration with Cosmocoin as their first DApp partner.

The arrival of the Galaxy S9 was ripe with speculation but Samsung finally affirmed the rumours when it made this statement, “Galaxy S10 is built with defense-grade Samsung Knox, as well as a secure storage backed by hardware, which houses your private keys for blockchain-enabled mobile services.”
In a further press release Samsung said, “With the introduction of the Galaxy S10 line, Samsung Electronics has once again demonstrated how it is steering the future of the smartphone screen.
