As per an official blog post recently shared by Samsung, the wallet is a new platform that allows Galaxy users to organize boarding passes, digital keys, identification cards, and more, in one secure and easy-to-use mobile app. The wallet is protected by Samsung Knox, the in-house defense-grade security system.

Apart from all these, users can also analyze their digital asset portfolio and check the value of their crypto across various exchanges. Samsung also says that its wallet will begin fostering official IDs such as student IDs and driver’s licenses later this year.
