HTC used to be one of the juggernauts back in the beginning of Android, yet throughout the long term, the organization has been somewhat calm on the portable front. We have seen HTC dispatch another phone once in a while, yet they haven't been especially dynamic, basically contrasted with other handset producers.
That being said, it appears to be that HTC could be preparing to make another drive into the market. This is as indicated by a tweet by Abhishek Yadav who found that HTC could be chipping away at another Android tablet with the model number A100.
The tweet additionally asserts that this tablet will be estimated around $200 and they likewise several pictures of the gadget (as you can find in the tweet above). It's intriguing that HTC could be arranging another tablet. The last we saw a tablet from HTC it was the Nexus 9, which was additionally Google's initial efforts to dispatch tablets under the Nexus marking.
Nowadays Android tablets aren't that normal as the market is for the most part overwhelmed by Apple's iPad, however accepting the $200 sticker price is genuine, it very well may be interesting to Android clients who'd prefer not to utilize iOS and don't have any desire to pay a huge load of cash for an iPad. There is presently no word on when this supposed HTC tablet will dispatch or which markets it will be accessible in, however ideally more subtleties will be uncovered soon.
We haven't genuinely heard much from HTC regarding smartphones, and at CES 2021, there was essentially nothing from them, yet apparently over in Taiwan, HTC has since discreetly dispatched a fresh out of the box new mid-officer as the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G.
As the name recommends, this is a 5G handset, however it will accompany mid-went specs and that is something worth being thankful for. At the present time, most of 5G fit handsets are leads with exorbitant cost focuses, so for HTC to deliver a mid-went phone will assist those on more tight financial plans with getting their hands on a 5G skilled gadget.
As far as value, it is supposed to be around $430, so the inquiry is, what sort of equipment would we be able to anticipate? In the engine, the phone will utilize Qualcomm's Snapdragon 690 chipset and will accompany 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable stockpiling, and a 6.7-inch IPS LCD Full HD show.
The phone will likewise include a quad camera arrangement on the back that comprises of a 48MP principle camera, a 8MP ultrawide camera, a profundity sensor, and a full scale camera. That is very noteworthy at a phone with a cost this way. It will likewise pack a 5,000mAh battery that should last you a long time, alongside help for 18W charging.
On Saturday at a crypto conference in New York, HTC's Phil Chen announced that HTC will bring a low-cost version of its blockchain phone, the EXODUS 1s. The device will be able to act as a full node for the Bitcoin network, meaning customers will store the entire block chain's data on their devices. The company will also launch an SDK for its Zion Vault HTC's crypto wallet app. HTC also has ambitious plans to open-source the code behind its social key recovery mechanism. The phone will available by the end of Q3. He further added that "It is going to be a lot cheaper, it will a lot more accessible". He said the device will retail for between $250 and $300.
He further explained that the company saw it as a really important piece of the pie, for the Bitcoin ecosystem. We think that is foundational to the whole decentralized internet and just the whole fundamental premise. He said, If you don't own your keys, you don't own your Bitcoin, you don't own your crypto. He believes that smartphones today are capable of handling the technology, with the decreasing price of processing chips and storage media it is becoming constantly cheaper and more efficient. We expect that phones will be powerful enough.
"The bitcoin blockchain is about 200 [gigabytes], and it's growing about 60 gigs per year. And those numbers are reasonable to hold on a smartphone. Imagine the iPod with 256 gigs ... of course, the music fan wants to keep the whole music library but the crypto fan wants to keep the whole bitcoin blockchain." I think running light nodes, like Ethereum for example, is definitely doable, but it all depends on the specs.
Its new 1st is seen as a trendsetter for many as a contributor to the broader crypto market. The company would continue to support its existing EXODUS 1 product and will add an Etherscan widget for customers to explore the Ethereum blockchain and support for further non-fungible tokens.
Recently a reputed English IT journal brought news into everyone's notice about HTC's upcoming move. The Taiwanese Electronics brand HTC has revealed its plan to release a next-generation model of its blockchain-centric smartphone somewhere by the end of 2019. According to HTC's chief decentralized officer Phil Chen, the development is still in the process and aims to boost smartphones sales. If realized, this will also help to expand the company's blockchain echo system.
In sprint 2018, HTC first unveiled its plans for its first native blockchain phone. HTC Exodus will support multiple block chains, including Bitcoin, Ethereum networks, PCMag reported May 15. HTC Vive creator Phil Chen seem pretty positive about the possible outcomes after this phone is being launched. Chen said the Company's mission is to support the entire blockchain ecosystem in order to "help underlying protocols expand their base of dedicated nodes". Chen also mentioned that the upcoming premium phone will support "multiple blockchain protocols" such as BTC, Ethereum, Lightning Network (LN), and Definity Network.
The Android smartphone will feature a universal digital currency wallet as well as a secure hardware enclave. Chen also insisted that HTC Exodus would be highly secure and follow high standards of security and data protection. He said: "I want to see a world where the end consumers can truly own their data - browsing history, identity, assets, wallets, email, messaging - without the need of central authorities. As there isn't much information about Exodus right now, we can't estimate the price tag it might carry but Chen said that company may consider cryptocurrency as a means of payment for the upcoming blockchain powered smartphone.
The second-generation of HTC Exodus will extend its supported blockchain apps to browsing, messaging and probably to the social media. These new communication apps will be based on peer-to-peer connections instead of being routed via clouds. Chen referred to the major success of centralized consumer apps like Uber and Airbnb as an emerging sector of blockchain and decentralized technologies.
HTC is about to launch two smartphones next week at an HTC exclusive event. Dubbed as the HTC "For U," it will be held on January 12 to take veils of the HTC U Ultra and the HTC U Play. The U Ultra (Ocean) will sport a huge 6-inch display, while the U Play (Alpine) will come in a much smaller 5.2-inch size variant. Some sources are indicating that HTC will also be revealing a third variant in the U series (Ocean Note) with a 5.5" - 5.7" screen size, but we will have to wait and see if that really happens.
The highlight of the Ocean and Ocean Note as per what we have heard so far is the curved display which HTC will introduce to their smartphones for the first time. Camera performance is also supposed to be excellent, with a DxOMark score higher than that of even the Google Pixel phones. Unfortunately, all rumors are pointing towards the fact that none of these phones will have a 3.5mm audio jack. Considering that HTC isn't particularly enjoying a lot of popularity at the moment, that's a very bold decision to say the least.
