- HTC’s first metaverse smartphone will be available on June 28 during its ‘Log In To The Future’ event, which the firm just unveiled with its Viverse branding on Twitter and Facebook.
- HTC refers to its augmented reality and virtual reality goods and service ecosystem as the Viverse.
- At MWC 2022, the firm first revealed its high-end “metaverse” smartphone. The phone was supposed to be released in April, but the Taiwanese business postponed its release.
It’s likely to include AR/VR capabilities as well as support for metaverse operations. In addition, HTC’s open-source metaverse platform, Viveverse, might be integrated into the phone.

Given the company’s presumably strong position in the virtual reality space, we may anticipate the phone to have exciting metaverse capabilities. As a result, it’s expected to launch with a high-end MediaTek or Snapdragon CPU and a slew of high-end features. The item’s price is likewise believed to be in the high-end bracket.
The HTC Viverse would be the company’s first high-end smartphone in years. Following that, the company released the blockchain-focused Exodus 1 and Exodus 2 and a few mid-range models in specific areas. The new phone may help it reclaim its position in the smartphone industry, but we’ll have to wait and see if this is the case.
HTC hasn’t said if the event will focus on the smartphone launch, but the poster implies it will. On the right side of the poster, there appear to be volume controls, an indentation on the left, and the possibility of a 3.5mm connector.
We are not sure whether the Viverse smartphone will be limited to Taiwan or will be available in other countries. At the time, the details were hazy, and only HTC could shed some light on the situation. It’s better to wait until June 28 to gain a more definitive picture of the next HTC phone and the company’s future smartphone intentions.
