From March 2019, HTC Exodus 1 will be sold for $ 699. With this price, you will own a smartphone with 6-inch IPS screen, 2,880 x 1,440 px resolution, 12MP + 16MP dual camera located on the back, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, internal memory 128GB with 3,500mAh battery. More importantly, you have a smartphone focused on blockchain technology, and HTC said it will add many new blockchain features to Exodus 1 with 20 completely new applications.
New applications are called "Dapps" and are designed to take advantage of Exodus 1 hardware. For example, the Numbers app is in Dapps. This app will keep track of your walking, sleeping, driving or other data types. You can then sell these data to third parties in exchange for encryption.
This idea of Numbers is for users who are not too interested in sharing data with third parties, and forcing companies to be more transparent in using these data. In addition, Numbers also assumes lower health or car insurance rates if it has enough "positive" data about the user's walking and driving habits. To do that, the development team behind Numbers has had to negotiate with several insurance companies.
Besides the new Dapps apps, HTC also announced its collaboration with Opera. When you open the Opera web browser on Exodus 1, you will be able to perform micro-level transactions with Ether at sites that support this payment model.
