The device will also offer an easy and secure way to recover keys lost in the hardware should you lose your phone or forget your key, ensuring each user maintains full custody at all times with no HTC interference.

The Exodus 1 is also able to run decentralized apps and programs that run on the blockchain.

HTC, a Taiwanese consumer electronics company, unveiled its flagship blockchain-focused smartphone today, called the Exodus 1.

The team understands that now they are working with an absolutely new product that's why they hope that the blockchain community will get them feedback about the early-access version which will be extremely useful for introducing upgrades and improvements for the device. The translucent flavour will, just as it is in the case of the U12+, let you have a sneak-peak inside the phone so you can probably marvel at its innards. The phone can be purchased via the HTC Exodus website. It comes with a 12MP + 16MP dual rear camera with high-quality zoom and an 8MP+8MP dual front camera for selfies. The handset looked promising in teasers and announcements that preceded the phone's launch, but if you were hoping that HTC invented some sort of new operating system, based exclusively on blockchain technology, then you'll be disappointed to find out the Exodus 1 is still an Android handset. It runs on the Android Oreo Operating System.
