HTC – a Taiwanese electronics company has announced it’s new smartphone with the name Exodus 1s, empowering clients to run a full Bitcoin (BTC) node on a portable phone. Exodus 1s was launched this weekend at the Berlin’s Lightning meeting. HTC plans to clarify that the Exodus project is something beyond a unique case. Its accessibility will be in all the different forms of cryptographic money.

The new Exodus 1s is a lower-cost form of the evolving HTC’s blockchain-powered phone Exodus 1, which as of late has enabled the users to support BTC.

The firms stated that the estimated cost of the device would be $233 in the market. The new gadget will be accessible to purchase coins utilizing Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Binance Coin (BNB) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The Lightening payment network will be used to sell the upgraded version of Exodus 1 at the Berlin meeting.

Since it requires more data capacity to store the full bitcoin records, the gadget will enable its users to install a 400+GB SD card to enlarge its memory. As indicated by Blockchain, presently the size of the full record closes on 250 GB. The cell phone requires a wifi connection to run on a full node or a plug into a power source. Likewise, it can be utilized without such connections. Though the company recommends a connection to be used.

The cell phone features a built-in wallet to help clients safely store cryptographic forms of money. And features of the Exodus1 are 4 GB of RAM and 63 GB of capacity and keeps running on Android Oreo 8.1

The firm announced the device will be first available for clients in 27 countries like Europe, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.

Outside of its blockchain capabilities, the HTC Exodus 1S features entry-level hardware. It’s got a 5.7-inch HD display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and it has a single rear-facing 13-megapixel camera. It charges over MicroUSB, but at least you get a 3.5mm headphone jack.

HTC’s Exodus phones are an ambitious attempt by the company to appeal to cryptocurrency enthusiasts as its smartphone sales have plummeted in recent years. Compared to the Exodus 1, the cheaper starting price of the Exodus 1S could make it appealing as a secondary device to experiment with.
