HTC was a pioneer in the use of crypto phones.
It created the Exodus 1 smartphone, which can run a full Bitcoin node and includes a built-in crypto hardware wallet, as recently as 2018.
It has a 6.6-inch Gorilla Glass display with a resolution of 1080 x 2412 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, as well as an 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor.
A 4,520 mAh battery that supports Qi wireless charging and rapid charging keeps the gadget running.
