HTC revenue for October represents six-month high, outlook hopeful
HTC’s history is an exciting one, and definitely not monotone. There were ups and downs, success stories and mistakes, which, all together, have brought the Taiwanese smartphone maker in a not so easy situation and position. We’ve recently looked at (what we think were) some of the mistakes HTC has made throughout the years, and, finally, things seem to look somewhat better for the company.
Its most recent flagship, the HTC One A9, is going to slowly get into customers’ hands soon, as we’re seeing a posted HTC revenue of NT$8.95 billion (US$276.8 million) for the month of October. To put things in context, while these October figures are the highest for the past six months, and are up 25.92 percent compared to September, they’re down 43.2 percent on year.
After a gloomy start of the year, HTC revenues for the first ten months of 2015 (January through October) are NT$104.88 billion, which represent a 32.68 percent decrease over the same period of last year.
Still, there’s a little light to show the way for the company, and revenues, according to analysts, are expected to continue growing as we enter the Holiday and shopping season; the new HTC One A9 will have a huge contribution to that, and we can’t help but hope that the company finds its way back to where it needs to be.
