The brand has since dialled down its phone-making efforts ever since Google bought over most of its smartphone business unit, and has since been making entry-level phones for other territories sporadically.

HardwareZone Back in MWC 2022, HTC announced Viverse, a VR- and AR-powered platform that's meant to incorporate 5G connectivity, location-based technology, as well as AR and VR into a "metaverse" for its connected ecosystem. Among the many promises was one where HTC said it's looking to launch a high-end flagship-grade smartphone that can take advantage of Viverse, as reported by WinFuture. South China Morning Post China's Big Tech companies from ByteDance to Tencent Holdings are testing the waters in the fashion metaverse even though prospects of monetisation and profitability are slim in the foreseeable future. If that happened, the unknown Viverse smartphone could have been HTC's first flagship mobile in the last three years. Passenger movements crossed the one-million mark for the first time in two years in March and passenger traffic in April neared 40 per cent of pre-pandemic levels. The last flagship phone was the HTC U12 series, which is still listed on HTC's official Southeast Asia portal. Meanwhile, social e-commerce app Xiaohongshu is selling virtual fashion items in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), while gaming and social media giant Tencent Holdings has undertaken collaborations with a number of fashion brands for its Peacekeeper Elite game, the localised version of PUBG Mobile. The brand has since dialled down its phone-making efforts ever since Google bought over most of its smartphone business unit, and has since been making entry-level phones for other territories sporadically. He hopes to achieve that as an ambassador for Under Armour and participate in the upcoming AOM (All Out Mile) event in early June.

Unfortunately, the old flagship dominance of HTC may not be coming true just yet. Andrea Fenn, CEO of digital marketing agency Adiacent China, said the country is ready for a metaverse boom.7 per cent from the previous month. The Viverse-related HTC phone is likely delayed, according to a new report by PhoneArena. That much rings true, as the phone is nearly two months late to its initial April 2022 reveal. Moreover, China's ongoing dynamic zero Covid-19 policy may facilitate the digital transformation, as brands will have to spend their marketing budgets in a way that encourages people to spend while staying at home, Fenn said. According to GizmoChina, the metaversal phone stands a chance of being a flagship-lite device (and not true flagship in quality or parts), and more details need to be unveiled before anyone outside of HTC can be sure of a comeback. It reinforces our position as Changi Airport’s anchor airline, and reflects our confidence in Singapore’s future as a pre-eminent global air hub,” SIA’s chief executive officer Goh Choon Phong said in a statement.
