Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange Huobi Global announced Tuesday the launch of an Android-based mobile phone, the “Acute Angle,” with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet. The gadget, which costs just $ 515, was released by Whole Network, a startup that Huobi invested in.
“We think blockchain phones are a promising area for future blockchain industry development. As the industry develops and as innovations like 5G become increasingly integrated into our telecommunications systems, we believe more and more crypto communities will want to trade and transact from mobile devices,” Huobi Global CEO Livio Weng said.
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.
