The new Ledger Stax wallet includes an E-Ink display that wraps around the device like a foldable display and extends to the wallet's front.
Recent reports indicate that Tony Fadell, who is best known for inventing Apple's iPod, collaborated with cryptocurrency wallet manufacturer Ledger to build the new Ledger Stax hardware wallet. Fadell's role on the project was recently reported. The company has also developed photographs, information on the price, and detailed specifications for their newest product, which is called Ledger Stax.
The new wallet, which is called the Ledger Stax, has an E-Ink display that wraps around the device like a foldable display and extends all the way to the front of the wallet itself. On this display, users are able to easily review their recent transactions, and they can also personalise the lock screen by uploading any picture or NFT artwork that they have saved to their wallet.
If you're not familiar with Ledger, the company manufactures hardware similar to that of UBS that allows for the offline storage of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The company's flagship product is the Ledger Nano, which connects to a user's phone and provides secure crypto storage and viewing.
The Ledger Stax also has a 3.7-inch foldable touchscreen, type-C port, Bluetooth v5.2 connectivity, inbuilt magnets, and a chip security mechanism that has received the CC EAL5+ certification.
According to sources, the suggested retail price for the Ledger Stax would be $279, compared to the prior models' suggested retail prices of $79 for the Nano S Plus and $149 for the Nano X wallet. Ledger also disclosed that pre-orders are now being accepted for the device, which will be made accessible by March of next year.
