Huobi Launches Low-Cost Blockchain Phone With Built-in Crypto Wallet
A cheaper blockchain phone is debuting in Southeast Asia, with a U.S. and European launch promised in the near future.
Huobi Global announced Tuesday the launch of the “Acute Angle” blockchain phone for $515. The Acute Angle is made by Whole Network, a startup that Huobi invested in. Also announced today, Whole Network’s NODE token will be listed on Huobi Prime. Running against competitors like Sirin Labs’ $1,000 “Finney” phone, the Whole Network device can be purchased with Huobi’s native token, HT, for roughly half the price.
Based on Android’s operating system, Acute Angle is currently available in China with a Q4 2019 launch planned for Southeast Asia. Dates for the U.S. and European rollout have not yet been given.
