HTC’s metaverse phone Desire 22 Pro and Solana’s Web 3 smartphone Saga to enter global markets soon. HTC Desire 22 Pro is expected to hit India at the end of September.
The metaverse is ever-evolving and the latest entrants in this world are metaverse or crypto phones. The entry of HTC’s metaverse phone, Desire 22 Pro, a follow-up to last year’s HTC Desire 21 Pro, and blockchain company Solana’s upcoming cryptophone Saga, in collaboration with Osom, a leading Android development company, can be a game-changer in tech.
The HTC Desire 22 Pro is speculated to be released in India around September 30, 2022, with a starting price of around Rs 30,530. Solana Labs announced the launch of its Web 3 smartphone Saga, which will be available in 2023, at an event last week in New York City.
Considering the new launches, is this going to be the metaverse world’s iPhone moment? How will metaverse phones impact the world? The answers to some of these questions are still difficult to give. In the meantime, we tell you what they offer.
What Is A Metaverse Phone?
A metaverse phone is a next-generation device which combines the security of a crypto hardware wallet with a smartphone’s usability to provide a highly secure cryptographic gadget.
Through a metaverse phone, users can have easy access to the metaverse community via mobile browser. Users can also experience live-streaming music and video content and switch between realities seamlessly.
“Metaverse is still in an evolving phase and everyone is trying to figure out the right device that will help in making Metaverse consumable by a larger audience. A phone is obviously the perfect choice as the user does not need to buy anything new for exploring the Metaverse. The biggest advantage is that it can make the Metaverse accessible to more people and, depending on the device's specifications, can make content consumption on Metaverse easier,” says Piyush Gupta, President, Kestone, a digital marketing firm.
