According to the latest reports from Asia in the past few hours, Samsung’s Galaxy S10 will ship next month with a preinstalled copy of the Enjin crypto wallet, which supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and all Ethereum tokens (such as Basic Attention Token or Augur).
Earlier today, news outlet Asia Crypto Today reported that they had heard from anonymous sources that “the Enjin Wallet has been chosen as the partners for the new flagship phone,” and they referred to this as “the biggest partnership in crypto history.” What seems to support the first claim is that the online shopping site of SK telecom, South Korea’s largest wireless carrier, seems to have posted a product listing page for the Samsung Galaxy S10 that shows a screenshot from the phone’s “Samsung Blockchain Keystore” as well as one from the Enjin cryptocurrency wallet:
The website for the Enjin crypto wallet says that it supports BTC, ETH, LTC, ENJ and all ERC-20 tokens by default” and that “other altcoins will be supported soon.” The Enjin wallet actually also supports ERC-721 and ERC-1155 (an Ethereum token standard that Enjin created itself).
Here are a few more screenshots to give you a better idea of what the interface looks like:
This non-custodial crypto wallet was launched on January 8th. The Enjin team says that they have worked hard to try to make the Enjin wallet “almost as secure as a hardware wallet” on “non-rooted” Android devices, and that they have “commissioned 3rd party audits and penetration testing with trusted security researchers and experts to ensure that the Enjin Smart Wallet remains ultra-secure and tested before each new release.” In fact, they go so far as to say that they “can confidently state that the Enjin Digital Smart Wallet is more secure than any other mobile wallet in the world.”
