From a manufacturing standpoint, the HTC One has been off to a pretty bumpy start. First we heard of issues with the UltraPixel camera that were affecting the company’s ability to produce enough units, and then there was that whole mess with Nokia and the HAAC microphones HTC wasn’t supposed to have been putting in the One. HTC isn’t letting a few issues like these drag the One down, and reports instead that production levels keep ramping on up, ready to meet consumer demand.
Compared to April, HTC is equipped to manufacture twice as many One handsets this month. It intends to push itself even further still, and June will see production reach even higher levels.
That makes it sound like the One continues to see strong demand, even with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S 4, the One’s chief competition. We already know that Samsung is seeing some fantastic sales figures for the GS4, and wait now to learn just how well the One ends up doing, and if it will be enough to help HTC regain some of its footing in the smartphone market.
