LG planning to launch a blockchain-based smartphone: Really?

Recently, we heard the news that Samsung has decided to team up with chat app company Kakao, to launch a limited edition of Galaxy Note 10. This limited edition is dubbed as Klaytn Phone, and the device will come with five Klaytn Dapps along with a crypto wallet. But looks like LG couldn’t resist the opportunity to be a part of the blockchain club.

This news must have traveled around the mobile world as sources have come forward with the rumors that LG is preparing its blockchain-centered phone for launch. Sources have said that LG is conducting research into the Dapp and blockchain companies and they are arranging meetings with local Dapp developers.

However, LG has not confirmed about the news as well as made any official announcements. LG might join companies like Samsung and HTC soon in the industry of blockchain-focused smartphones. HTC launched its Exodus smartphone ahead of the rest, and it was marketed as a privacy-oriented smartphone to keep the user data safe.

The latest phone was launched in October 2018, and the Exodus 2 is highly anticipated with higher expectations by the users. Whether LG launches a blockchain-based phone or not, the question is if its a better alternative to a regular phone or is it capitalization on a trend?
