The Samsung Galaxy A8s was released last month with a hole in its LCD.

Litecoin's latest Medium post and leaked images on Twitter have substantiated the rumours that Samsung's upcoming new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, will feature a built-in cryptocurrency wallet. Take a look below for more details.

The Galaxy S10 in these images have a single camera in the display cutout, so were likely seeing the regular Galaxy S10 variant in the pictures below.

Samsung first debuted this camera cutout design in the Galaxy A8S phone, released in China late a year ago, which features the "Infinity O" display.

Today's leak highlights all these features and displays how the finished S10 will look. It's from the Dutch publication AllAboutSamsung, who have a good track record of obtaining such information.

Previous leaks in December had implied that Samsung's Galaxy S10 would include a wallet app with two parts: 1) a cold wallet for storing cryptocurrency and private keys and 2) a hot wallet for crypto transactions.

Although drilling holes into the screens of the S10 and S10 Plus allowed Samsung to essentially eliminate the top bezel, a small but noticeable "chin" is still there at the bottom of both phones, looking significantly thicker than what various renders led us to expect.

Additionally, if the images are authentic, then we can also confirm that the Galaxy S10 Plus will feature a triple rear camera setup while the S10 will feature a dual camera setup.

To watch the Samsung Galaxy S10 launch live stream, simply head to https://www.samsung.com/uk for live streaming coverage on the day, that's 7pm GMT on Wednesday 20 February. 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.

If this is the first time you've read about the Galaxy Sport, let's do some catching up...
