HTC to release a high-end smartphone focused on metaverse

03 March 2022 0

In recent times, HTC's frequency of releasing smartphones has gone down drastically, and even when it has launched, the focus has mostly been on budget and mid-range phones. A new report has emerged claiming that the company is ready to make a comeback to the premium smartphone market.

As per Digitimes, HTC is preparing for the release of a high-end smartphone in the month of April. The unique thing about the phone is that it is said to be focused on metaverse. It does not offer details about what exactly "metaverse functionality" means here but if we have to assume, it will likely have some sort of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) capabilities.

This is not the first time we are hearing a tech company interested in offering immersive VR/AR experiences directly through a smartphone. Google and Samsung are two other big names that tried the same but could not taste success. However, HTC's vast experience in the VR space due to its Vive business could prove to be the difference here.

The report of a metaverse phone may sound absurd in the first impression but HTC is no stranger to such adventures. It previously released a blockchain-focused smartphone named Exodus 1 in 2018. It came with flagship specifications and allowed users to store their cryptocurrencies locally and with safety.
