Htc has recently announced their new phone, a cryptocurrency wallet that has been built within this device and judging by its specs it seems like a flagship device. But the HTC Exodus 1 can only be purchased with cryptocurrency and not cheap, at a whopping $900 (USD) using Bitcoin or Ethereum. The wallet built in is something called the Zion wallet where you retain the keys, so if your phone gets lost, you can always restore your wallet. The phone also seems to be on a bespoke version of Android so it would also be interesting to see what the security is like.
The HTC Exodus 1 has no affiliation with the exodus cryptocurrency wallet, just so happened to have the same name.
