HTC has had a blockchain-based smartphone HTC Exodus in the works for several months now and it even talked about some tidbits in a recent announcement but everything seemed pretty vague. Luckily, we don't have to wait too long as the so-called Exodus smartphone is coming as early as this month.
It looks like the company is keeping its promise and will deliver the handset this Fall and the announcement was made via its newly created HTC Exodus Instagram account. There's a pretty cool teaser to be found there and we just can't wait to see what HTC has been cooking all along.
I've upgraded it a few timed then fell back to it: It's rooted, has all Google services disabled, most apps can't access the internet (or data on the device) without my permission, still works smoothly for my usage pattern and the battery lasts me ...
This will likely be a secure crypto wallet and other functionality. A portable, battery-powered 'mining phone' would be absolutely idiotic.
