Crypto devotees have a shiny new gadget to marvel at as the entire specs of the device have been announced by the company and also the fact that they can pre-order it now.

The Specifications

Just like with most flagship devices, the new Exodus 1 features a Snapdragon processor with a six-inch QHD, 18:19 display. An impressive 12MP and 16MP camera combination can be found on the back, also dual 8 MP ones which are available on the front side can create a Bokeh unrefined impression.

The HTC smartphone also has six Gigabytes of DDR4X memory, as well as a Universal Flash internal storage 2.1 of 128 Gigabytes. The default OS is Android Oreo, which should be upgraded to Pie OS in the near future. Battery life will be increased drastically due to available support to ensure fast charging of the phone’s 3500 mAh battery. The phone also is highly resistant to dust and water, with a rate of IP68. The Edge Sense 2 embedded within the system of the smartphone makes operation with one hand much easier.

Never Lose Your Digital Assets

Now that the technical jargon is out of the way, a restoration system was built for social keys within the software especially designed to assist digital wallets. If a device that has crypto data is misplaced, losing the digital wallet too wouldn't be the best feeling. So, this system allows users to share more than one trusted users a component of a certain confidential key.

The trusted individual will download an app designed to manage these keys and give their component of the key to the user. Once this process is done, the user will be able to access their funds from their lost phone’s storage and move them to a safer place.

The HTC phone will be available in thirty-four countries and shipping will begin this December. It will not, however, be launched in China because the country still has many restrictions when it comes to cryptocurrencies. Customers can purchase the device only using cryptos. The price is set at 0.15 bitcoins or 4.78 ethereum coins, which amounts to about $950. The company didn’t currently share any plans of adjusting these prices to address the issue of volatility.
