HTC has mostly left the smartphone industry because the company was not making profits at all. In fact, HTC made a lot of losses in recent years thanks to the competition in the smartphone market and their comparatively sub-par offerings. This is what prompted HTC to exit the smartphone market and focus on its other businesses.
Also, HTC’s new CEO admitted that the company, which was once a trendsetter in the industry, is not focusing on its smartphones anymore. Having said that, HTC sprung a surprise last year as it announced a new lineup of Exodus devices.
Interestingly, the Exodus lineup from HTC offers smartphones for the cryptocurrency enthusiasts out there. Also, the price of this HTC Exodus 1s which is a cheaper version of its first Exodus smartphone is pretty good too. At just €219, the HTC Exodus 1s is available in various equivalent cryptocurrencies as per TechCrunch’s report.
But it should also be noted that the specifications of this device are not great at all. For starters, you have a Snapdragon 435 processor inside the device and Android 8.1 Oreo powering the software of it. The device’s display is also just a 5.7-inch HD+ one with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is not bad.
The main selling point of this device, however, is this statement from HTC’s Phil Chen where he mentions that “We gave users the ability to own their own keys, and now we’ve gone one step further to allow users to run their own full Bitcoin node,”. He adds that “We are providing the tools for access to universal basic finance; the tools to have a metaphorical Swiss bank in your pocket.”
Obviously, the smartphone is not meant for regular users who are looking for specifications and better price-to-performance ratio and only on blockchain enthusiasts so we can’t criticize the product too much as well.
