“The arrival of the new Samsung phones could start popularization of the crypto currency wallet system in Korea,” said an industry official.

Samsung is not the first in Korea to adopt the virtual currency system.

SK Planet, an online platform subsidiary of SK Telecom, has introduced a similar wallet system for its mobile payment service Syrup.
