With four different Galaxy S10 & # 39; s, Galaxy Note 10 & # 39; s and the upcoming launch of two Galaxy Folds, Samsung & # 39; s flagship line-up has officially reached ten phones for this year. Maybe this is too much, but Samsung doesn't seem to think so. It is now releasing a blockchain brand version of the Galaxy Note 10 to bring in customers looking for a Samsung flagship focused on cryptocurrency.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Galaxy Note 10 variant, which is only available in South Korea, is being marketed as a "KlaytnPhone". It is named after a blockchain platform made by the blockchain arm of Kakao, a South Korean messaging company. WSJ says the KlaytnPhone has built in a crypto wallet and blockchain apps and will also give users a "certain number" of Klay, a cryptocurrency of Kakao.
Having a wallet and blockchain apps built into a phone is not exactly new – Samsung has included a crypto wallet in some Galaxy S10s, HTC is already offering a blockchain phone, and the diary also says that other Android phones can execute Klaytn's blockchain apps. But according to the Diary, only the KlaytnPhone will "boast the full breadth of transaction services from the blockchain platform."
Otherwise, the KlaytnPhone has the same hardware and is expected to have the same price as the Galaxy Note 10s without a blockchain, reports the diary. (The KlaytnPhone is also reported to show the Klaytn logo when it is started and turned off, in case you forget which version of the Galaxy Note 10 you have.)
