In a masterstroke, the global smartphone manufacturer HTC launched a metaverse phone, “Desire 22 Pro,” on 28th June. The phone comes with an integrated digital asset wallet and virtual reality headset pairing feature, and more.
With the launch of Desire 22 Pro, HTC has entered the Web 3 space, and the company claims that the product “combines the experience of mobile phones with virtual reality.” Moreover, according to some sources, HTC’s viveverse phone was aimed to be launched in April but was delayed due to supply chain problems.

This phone will allow the users to access and manage their metaverse assets with support from Ethereum and Polygon blockchain networks. Users can manage cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and other DeFi assets using the HTC Desire 22 Pro integrated apps. Moreover, there is an in-built software that will allow the users to “create their own virtual space” and purchase NFTs in a virtual marketplace.
Moreover, the phone has HDC 2.2 connectivity that will allow users to wirelessly mirror content on the Vive Flow Vr headset and set up and manage their VR hardware. Accordion to HTC’s Global Head of Product, Shen Ye, the smartphone “opens new immersive experiences as the perfect partner for VIVE Flow—whether it’s meeting colleagues in VR, or enjoying your own private cinema anywhere you are,”
Apart from that, the phone has exciting specifications as well, such as a 6.6-inch Gorilla Glass display, a resolution of 1080 x 2412 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 8 GB ram with 128 GB storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor.
HTC has always been ahead in innovation and is a pioneer in the smartphone industry. The company also created the Exodus 1 smartphone that can run a full Bitcoin node and comes with an integrated crypto hardware wallet.
This phone is a masterstroke and will change the way users interact with the crypto industry as the access is still largely restricted to the web.
