The company ByteDance behind the virus video-sharing app TikTok will soon launch its own smartphone.
A few months ago, rumors about equipment were common, but now the spokesperson of the Chinese giant officially confirmed this development.
They said the device is working to extend the company’s product portfolio beyond news and video applications.
The company’s representative did not say much about the function of the phone, but the Chinese outlet “Financial” reported that under the leadership of former Smartisan executive Wu Dezhou, the company’s development lasted seven months.
In other words, we do want the phone to offer some ByteDance-owned apps, from TikTok and IM Feiliao to the news app Jinri Toutiao, and possibly music streaming services.
Basically, if the device does not provide the ideal software/hardware, people may not purchase it when they choose to install the same ByteDance application on a better device.
