Prior to the launch, the company is partnering with the popular blockchain title, CryptoKitties. On July 11, HTC in Hong Kong officially announced the smartphone, now ready to arrive on the market.
As of now, there are no details on how exactly HTC hopes to “reshape the Internet” or boost its financial prospects through the latest investment projects.
