Samsung to release a crypto-centric version of the Galaxy Note 10
Samsung just recently released their latest flagships, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus.

Samsung will sell this crypto phone in both Note 10 and Note 10 Plus versions, and we can expect pricing to be about the same. People will also receive a certain amount of Klaytn’s “Klay” coins when they purchase the device to be used as they wish.
