We have been hearing rumors regarding the blockchain smartphone from HTC for quite some time. However, we don't have any official confirmation until today when the company confirms the existence of blockchain-centric smartphone Exodus. Before going further it is important to mention not to mix the Exodus smartphone with the Exodus wallet.
Today the company officially confirmed the blockchain smartphone will be announced in fall this year and the device will be "the first cold wallet phone with key recovery." Unfortunately, much of the details regarding the phone are still in dark. However, a new website regarding the HTC's blockchain is up where you can register to know more details regarding the device.
As being a block-chain centric smartphone we can expect it to have a number of features exclusive for crypto fans. The device most likely will allow the users to save their personal encrypted data, cryptocurrency and keys detail on the phone memory rather than the cloud. A decentralized app store and apps are also pretty much on cards.
We also heard that HTC joined hands with developers to create an app focused on blockchain to help users take control of encrypted data. This app will be released soon and initially, it will be available for HTC premium smartphones ahead of Exodus release.
