HTC One Production Increased, the Number of Produced Units Doubled for June
Anticipating impressive sales for the summer, the Taiwan-based phone maker has officially announced that the production rate of the HTC One terminals has been increased, therefore in June there will be manufactured twice as many units compared to the month of April.
The information comes from Jack Tong, the president of HTC North Asia, who was quoted by Focus Taiwan. The pumped up HTC One production will continue beyond the month of June, and this move probably comes as a response to Samsung’s statements saying that over 6 million Samsung Galaxy S4 units were already sold in the first two weeks after the smartphone’s debut on the market.
The first problems regarding the production of HTC One occurred when the UltraPixel sensor was not manufactured fast enough to satisfy the market demand.
There were also some issues with the technology used for the One microphone, as Nokia claimed that infringed their patents, another reason why the production was affected. Well, it seems that all those problems are gone now, and that HTC One is currently produced at full capacity. What do you think? Will the summer be generous with HTC or the fall will come with some disappointing quarterly financial results for the Taiwanese company?
