HTC Exodus: everything you need to know about the blockchain phonetechnicalstudio | July 10, 2018 | 0 | Mobiles
Blockchain is everywhere at the moment, with the technology making headlines around the world with its potentially game-changing applications (as well as frequent valuing fluctuations)
HTC appears to be the latest company to jump on the blockchain bandwagon, announcing the Exodus – what it calls the first major blockchain-powered smartphone.
The Taiwanese firm has not had the smoothest ride in the smartphone market in recent months, having made a raft of recent job cuts, device shipments dwindling across the world and its most recent U12 Plus flagship receiving somewhat mixed reviews.
The HTC Exodus is the brainchild of Phil Chen, who was the driving force behind the Vive virtual reality headset, and forms the start of a major blockchain push as the company looks to return to winning ways.
HTC says it wants to “make decentralization a reality”, expanding the blockchain ecosystem through a connected network of mobile devices – so could the HTC Exodus be the start of a new generation? Here’s everything we know so far…
The key details:
- What is it? HTC’s new blockchain-boosted smartphone
- When is it out? Q3 2018 – so before the end of September
- What will it cost? Probably around $1000 (around £600, AU$1300)
Given that HTC only recently released the U12 Plus, it would make sense that the company would look to spread out its launches.
