Since then, we have only released low-end to mid-premium smartphones in some markets. This may change soon as HTC has hinted at the launch of New flagship Android smartphone with advanced VR features For the Metaverse.

HTC aims to cater to Metaverse enthusiasts with future high-end smartphones. Also, given the company’s past experience in the AR / VR industry and blockchain systems, we can expect to fulfill this promise.

The advent of the new HTC phone could mean that the company is preparing to return to smartphone games dominated by Apple, Samsung, and various Chinese brands. It remains to be seen how HTC’s attempts will work in the market and whether its latest hype-led attempts will pay off.
