HTC has been out of the smartphone market for some time now. Its last device was a Wildfire-series phone catering to the budget segment. But earlier this year, HTC captivated fans when it announced that it is working on a new 5G smartphone called the HTC Viverse. Unfortunately, back then the company didn’t reveal the launch date of the phone keeping us anticipating its release. Now, finally, HTC has confirmed that the Viverse phone will debut this month.
HTC Viverse Phone is coming this month
HTC has confirmed that its much-awaited Viverse phone will launch on June 28, which is almost a week ahead. The teaser poster shared by the company is rather cryptic. It has an entrance, probably to its own Metaverse platform called the Viverse. This hints that the device will be a Viverse-centric phone. Apart from that, there’s nothing that the poster reveals.
HTC has been quiet about its Viverse phone ever since it was in the rumors. After it revealed its existence, a few leaks began to emerge for some HTC products. Similarly, last month, a wireless charger from the brand appeared on a certification website with model 2QBK200. It had a 15W charging speed. Although it only had the HTC branding, it could be an accessory for the Viverse phone, who knows?
Getting back to the phone, the Viverse phone’s specifications are still under wraps and there hasn’t been any concrete leak of the device. All we know for now is that it will be a 5G phone that will have something about Metaverse. For the unversed, HTC has already taken Metaverse seriously.
Earlier, the company announced the Viverse platform, which is said to be an open and secure Metaverse platform by HTC for its products. The brand has had its own VR headsets and smart glasses under the Vive branding for years now. These products are expected to work as an integration to the Viverse platform. The Viverse platform itself is said to be an integration of VR, AR, AI, and Blockchain. The brand also has considered 5G as a major element of the Viverse.
It appears that just like Microsoft, Meta, and other brands that forayed into the Metaverse platform, HTC plans to do the same. While HTC has already made a couple of products for its own Metaverse platform (i.e. Viverse) such as the aforementioned smart glasses and VR headsets, the company now appears to be taking a step forward with a Viverse-supported smartphone.
