Once famous and oblivious, HTC recently unveiled its flagship U12+ blockchain-focused platform Exodus 1 and Exodus 2 four years ago. After a long silence, the brand spoke earlier this year that it would respond to Facebook’s plans with a mobile phone called Viverse, an open source metaverse platform where the device will focus on virtual reality communications, spending time together and conducting business meetings. .
The HTC Desire 22 Pro is designed to be the successor to the HTC Desire 21 Pro, and it will be available in Europe from August 1 for 459 euros (about 183,000 HUF net). The company highlighted that what makes the metaverse good with it is that the phone is the perfect companion to the recently announced Vive Flow VR headset and provides access to a platform called HTC Viverse where users can get content to add their own VR-on.
The headset works with any Android phone anyway, so it’s still questionable why it’s worth buying an HTC mobile. Another trend mixed with the metaverse is NFTs: the Taiwanese side of HTC announced that the mobile phone also has a digital wallet (Viverse Wallet) to handle digital assets such as cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
In terms of specs, the Desire 22 Pro is more of a mid-range powerhouse. It has a 6.6-inch, 1080p, 120Hz refresh screen with a 32MP stand-alone camera in the upper left corner of the camera. There are three cameras on the back, a 64MP (f/1.8) primary, a 13MP (f/2.0) wide-angle sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor. Inside, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 695 processor with 8GB of RAM, plus 128GB of expandable microSD storage. It is powered by a 4520mAh battery that supports both 15W wireless and wireless charging, and it can be charged at 18W via a wire. The model with IP67 protection will be available in black and gold.
