Teaser Video Reveals HTC Exodus Blockchain Powered Smartphone to Launch Next Week
HTC Might Release Blockchain-Powered Smartphone Soon
HTC, a Taiwanese electronics company that is focused on making smartphones, has recently shown a teaser of Exodus, a blockchain-powered phone. While the rumors that the company would be making the device were started on May, HTC has only affirmed that the launch would happen now.
This new device will support decentralized applications and use a built-in secure hardware enclave, according to the original announcement. Now, HTC has released more information on Instagram which shows that the device will be called Exodus and will be coming on October 23.
While the teaser does not exactly states this date, it does show 10.23, which is very indicative, since this date will be next Monday.
The company has affirmed on its post that the company is
“proud to e announcing the official IG launch of Exodus”
and that the vision of the company is to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the first phone in the world that is dedicated to this technology.
The Chief Decentralizing Officer of HTC, Phil Chen, has affirmed in the first semester of 2018 that the new model would support many protocols like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Lightning Network, Dfinity and others.
During another interview, Chen has also pointed out that Exodus would cost about $1,000 USD, the same price as Finney, Sirin Lab’s blockchain phone. Is the phone going to be popular with this price tag? That is what we’ll see.
