The Samsung Blockchain KeyStore will let users be able to set the private key and most likely let users authenticate via biometric options such as the in-display fingerprint scanner (which is pretty much confirmed), PIN, password, etc. Samsung has also retained the Bixby button, which appears on the left of the smartphones below the volume rocker. In new Galaxy S10 live images leak, there is an indication that there is going to be a "Samsung Blockchain KeyStore" for the new phone. Samsung also notes that the Galaxy A9 Pro has a triple camera setup with a 24 megapixel main sensor, 10 megapixel telephoto camera with 2x zoom, and a 5 megapixel depth sensor.
