The number one phone company in the world would not include a crypto wallet featuring ethereum BY DEFAULT, if it did not believe it would be significantly utilized amongst their users.
Think about it
Phone generations last 1-2 years, which could very well mean Samsung is expecting significant crypto wallet usage on the S10 in the next 1-2 years.
Companies dont just build in features into phones expecting that only 1-3% of the population will use that feature, if theyre only expecting a fringe population to utilize the feature. They scrap it, or let the marketplace take care of building the app.
Jesus Christ. I am all for Ethereum financially and mentally. But why do you guys make posts where you try to convince yourself and others that you’ve made the right financial choice and speculate out of your ass. These huge shill posts of people trying to convince themselves and others ruin this community.
Maybe I attacked you a bit here and it’s not just you. The point is that every time there is any positive news, there will be a guy in the comments writing long paragraphs about why the news is SO great and amazing.

I’d argue they have no idea what features would get used, what I like to think, throw spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks and we get insane amount of bloat for it. Generally, Samsung doesn’t really drive the market forward much, and while the largest brand, their most popular phones are their no name cheap phones.
My biggest issue is I always think Samsung has poor development skills and I could see them fucking this up.
Sad part about Korean companies, especially big ones, is that they introduce/implement a feature they THINK users will use. They dont do whole mvp process. The top guys decide what to do and the slaves build them. Pretty outdated development process methodology.
If the leak is real, the most this proves is that they have experimented with it. It might be a feature they pull out for multiple generations before they decide it is appropriate to include it. I'm impressed that they're ready though.
If the private key is stored inside a secure enclave, you do not have to trust the phone manufacturer anymore than you would trust a wallet app storing your private key! You should be able to import any private key in there as well.
This will seriously help adoption. Even if this leak is potentially fake, it is only a matter of time before this is a feature in every smartphone.
Eh, still not really impressed and I have had an S5 for years...
What was that phone that had the physical slide/cover for the camera so it could only see things when you were using it? I dont think its too far outside the realm of reason to be a bit paranoid about your smart phone cameras these days.
I'll say I do like the hole punch better than the notch, but I don't really like either. I get the the real estate up there isn't nearly as high-value as what's down here, but there's a distraction factor with breaking the simple shape that I've never quite been able to get over.
I thought maybe they should sell two phones, one with a front camera and one that doesn't. I think it will be a good choice for people.

That's great news but fuck I would never trust a phone company to store a my money.
Having a few hundred bucks in it for day to day transactions is fine tho.

Think nano x + bluetooth + phone. S10 is same in one device. key signing is separated from rest if phone or should be at last. In that case it is unhackable.

Nothing that is connected to the internet is "unhackable".
The only way to store your crypto without the risk of getting hacked is to write down your private keys (or seed) on paper and store it in a safe place. I can get lost but cannot get hacked.
