Samsung has quietly allowed access to what they call Samsung Blockchain, which "helps developers easily manage chain accounts."
Quite simple. Unfortunately, the rest of the description is a little more opaque.
"In addition, DApp no longer needs to make separate transaction types that follow the types of parts," Samsung writes. "The SDK offers a payment gateway for cryptocurrency delivery with its user interface. To use this payment solution, DApp needs a keystore. Samsung Blockchain SDK connects users not only to the Samsung KeyStore, but also to all external cold wallets. "
Access to the SDK is currently limited – users can not download the SDK directly but need to request access to it – and it's hard to know when users will be able to experience the code, much less use it in production. Samsung has also announced the creation of its own KeyStore, a private key storage system built into Samsung's security layer called Knox.
"To ensure complete security, the private key and information located in the Samsung Blockchain Keystore are never saved in a Samsung cloud or external, nor visible by the Android operating system of the device," have they write.

As you can see above, there is no clear way to access the files, even with a Samsung developer account, and the developer's blog Samsung does not mention the SDK. We asked for other comments.
"The official version of Samsung Blockchain SDK will be announced by the end of 2019. In the meantime, developers can request a partnership to use the beta version of Samsung Blockchain SDK," wrote the developers in a FAQ.
The company has announced a number of chain block-based initiatives over the past year, including the launch of an encrypted wallet in March and allusions to a Dapp platform.
