The HTC Exodus is the name that has remained in the headlines for quite some time now. It all started back in the month of May when HTC, the giant Taiwanese firm, made a statement about their plan on launching the first ever native blockchain smartphone and since then the HTC Exodus has been in the limelight. 

As mentioned in one of our previous articles on HTC Exodus smartphone, it is based on the concept of cryptocurrency. And now this concept is coming to life, as the pre-orders made for the purchase of these Exodus smartphones are all set to be shipped in the month of December 2018. 

Although HTC is using the blockchain technology as an effective tool to hype its audience along with the blockchain community but there are still a number of questions that remain unanswered. The payment of the HTC Exodus phones was only possible in terms of cryptocurrency i.e. Bitcoin (BTC) $6428.59 +0.01% or Ethereum. As stated by the organization, this HTC smartphone will be available in 34 countries. 

HTC is claiming about the 'Secure Enclave' section of the smartphone that aims in fixing one of the major issues of cryptocurrency theft. Even the website of Exodus smartphone is full of quotes from pioneers of crypto-world like Charlie Lee and Vitalik Buterin. In other words, the locked section is primarily made to keep the users' crypto-wallet secure. This solution can act as a platform where software wallets will be combined with cold-storage. The HTC Exodus smartphones will also support some underlying protocols, including Dfinity and Lightning. 

Here are some of the speculated specifications of the HTC Exodus: 

  • 6-inch Quad HD+ display
  • Snapdragon 845 Processor
  • Dual Cameras
  • IP68 Waterproof Rating
  • Android Oreo
  • 6GB of RAM
  • 128GB of Storage

But there are some critics of this HTC Exodus blockchain smartphone who are being skeptical of the whole idea behind it. Let us know in the ‘Comment’ section down below, what you think about the new Exodus smartphone from HTC.
