New Pundi X XPhone Smartphone Allows Users To Switch Between Blockchain And Android

Pundi X’s New Smartphone Allows Users To Switch Between Blockchain And Android

The blockchain startup Pundi X has released new features for its smartphone that is based on blockchain technology. The XPhone was revealed during the Mobile World Congress conference that was held in Barcelona earlier this week.

The smartphone allows users to support Android applications and also blockchain-based decentralized apps (dApps) that are loaded on the device. The phone features a button that will allow individuals to switch between the blockchain and the Android mode.

In order to implement this feature, Pundi X explained that the phone loads both an Android 9.0 operating system and the Pundi’s Android-based Function X OS.

Pundi X explained:

“Blockchain-based calling and messaging can be toggled on and off on the phone operating system, which builds upon Android 9.0.”

The first working prototype was presented back in October, but there were some upgrades on the last device. The smartphone features a mid-range processor, 6 gigabytes of RAM and several other features.

The phone will be sold for $599, thus, it will be cheaper than other phones that have already been released to the market. The HTC Exodus 1, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Sirin Labs Finney are also competitors. All of them have different blockchain functionalities and features. Until now, there is no official date for the release, but the company believes it will be at the end of 2019.

Electroneum has also unveiled its smartphone specifically designed to mine ETN coins. Samsung released the Galaxy S10 with an integrated blockchain functionality to store private keys.

In the future, new smartphones related to blockchain technology could be released to the market. Indeed, the intention is to be able to increase the number of users of decentralized applications in the market. Since dApps started to be deployed on top of different networks, none of them was able to reach mass adoption. Blockchain-based smartphones could eventually help attract more users to the space and spread the benefits of distributed ledger technology (DLT).
