HTC announces the actual specifications for the Blockchain phone Exodus 1, which makes a massive call and lets you apply for a pre-order. Your phone has a wallet that is stored in a security area that is "protected from the Android OS" according to a press release that you can use to decrypt such as CryptoKitties and keep a key for the token.
In May, it was one of the company's more exciting projects. At that time, HTC's chief executive Phil Chen said that each Exodus phone would serve as a node to facilitate bitcoin transactions between users. He also said by phone that you can have "your own identity". But none of them are happening now.
Instead, Exodus 1 has part of the phone split for added security.
HTC has created a social key recovery mechanism when a cell phone is lost, stolen, or lost key information. You can keep your recovery details with a few trusted friends, who must download the Key Management app. HTC can use secret sharing algorithms to send information to friends and organize them together if necessary. In addition, third-party developers are opening their phones to create their own apps and wallets.
Exodus 1 has a 6-inch HD + display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. It has a 16 megapixel dual-rear camera and an 8 megapixel dual self-camera with bokeh effect and can record full 4K video at 60 FPS. The phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a battery of 3,500mAh. It runs Android Oreo and is dustproof and waterproof with IP68 rating.
BTC is available for $ 0.15 or EOS $ 4.78, which is just over $ 960 at the time of writing. You have to pay in cryptocurrency. Expected ship date is December. This phone is available in 34 countries and territories, including the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Austria, Norway, and other European regions. In particular, China explained that "China is different rules" and cryptocurrency trading are prohibited in July, which is what Chen told me.
