The name of the Taiwanese smartphone vendor HTC is indeed getting faded compared to the smart phone manufacturers from China who are getting more and more excited.
However, HTC seems to be trying to shine again by launching a phone that is predicted to support the metaverse, namely the HTC Desire 22 Pro.
The HTC Desire 22 Pro is billed as the “perfect companion” to HTC’s recently launched Vive Flow Virtual Reality (VR) device.
Like most VR devices, Vive Flow also allows users to enjoy a metaverse or virtual world.
Basically, VR Vive Flow is also compatible with other Android phones. However, being designed by the same company, the HTC Desire 22 Pro offers some exclusive features when connected to the VR Vive Flow.
Some of those exclusive features include access to the Viverse digital wallet to help manage cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFT).
