According to the latest financial report posted by HTC, talking about the monthly sales on the smartphone market, the Taiwanese company is recovering from the crisis it had to fight with in the past year. Therefore, the reported HTC smartphone sales are 48% higher than in April, and almost 100% higher than in March. In the same time, the HTC incomes raised to $969 million.
If the current trend is maintained, HTC will surpass even the most optimistic forecasts made by the company’s officials, because by the end of June the Taiwanese phone maker will reach a monthly income of $2.7 billion. Meanwhile, HTC recovered almost all the ground lost in the past year, the sales being only 3.35% lower than in the same month of 2012.
With most of the problems affecting the HTC One low supplies being solved, the company managed to stay strong in front of the assault of the Samsung rival, remaining competitive despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship had consistent sales on all the markets it activates on. After two months of sustained growth, the success of the HTC One is not questionable anymore, giving the Taiwanese company the boost it required in order to be able to enrich its smartphone line-up and continue to innovate in the smartphones area.
Among the yet unconfirmed rumors talking about the upcoming terminals of the Taiwanese phone maker, you will find a HTC One Mini model (HTC M4), several models member of the HTC Desire family, a dual-SIM variant of the HTC One, and a HTC One phablet codenamed T6, which will take on Samsung’s Galaxy S4.
Despite the fact the HTC One sales are skyrocketing, after we’ve heard last month that at least 6 HTC officials resigned, today we hear that the company’s Chief Operating Officer Matthew Costello will resign, too. Anyway, Costello will not leave the company, but it will remain as an executive adviser.
It seems that HTC is preparing a reorganization, which is involving a new team responsible to develop high-quality products, among others. These changes were confirmed by an internal HTC email that ended up on the hands of Bloomberg. Matthew Costello’s attributions will be taken over by Fred Liu, HTC president of engineering and operations.
HTC’s Georges Boulloy will lead the a new quality assurance division and a new team that will handle product life-cycle matters.
In case you’re wondering why the HTC One is selling well, I will remind you about the smartphone’s technical specifications. HTC One boasts a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 display with full HD resolution and Gorilla Glass 2 protection, while being underpinned by a Snapdragon 600 SoC with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU. The flagship smartphone also comes with 32 or 64 GB of internal storage and a 2,300 mAh battery.
While most of the smartphone makers fitted 13 megapixel cameras on the back of their flagship smartphones (see Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro), the HTC One comes with a 4 megapixel camera with UltraPixel technology, packing autofocus, LED flash, full HD video recording support, 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, and optical image stabilization.
In terms of connectivity, the HTC One brings all standards of WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE support, NFC chip, IR blaster, and microUSB 2.0. The smartphone is leaves the factory gates with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on board, fitted with HTC’s proprietary user interface, dubbed Sense 5.
