HTC Plans to Ship a Blockchain Phone This Year

HTC blazed trails in the late 2000s by bringing a smartphone to market based on the Android operating system. Now it wants to do the same with blockchain.

The Taiwanese electronics maker on Tuesday unveiled the Exodus smartphone, which would serve as both a mobile connecting point to the world of decentralized networks and a storage device for those who want to carry their crypto in their pocket.

According to Phil Chen – who previously founded HTC’s Vive virtual reality product line and recently returned to the company to spearhead the Genesis project – the company aims to start distributing the device in short order.

“We’re looking to ship by the end of this year,” Chen told CoinDesk.
