With a pretty dismal year to date financially, things may be looking up for HTC according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. An unnamed HTC executive has advised them that sales figures for its flagship device the HTC One are ‘Around five million’ since it went on-sale around the world last month. The source went on to say :
Orders are pretty good so far and are still more than what we can supply. This is partly due to the shortage of components. When the issue is resolved next month, we will have a better idea if it’s doing really well or not
If these figure turn out to be correct, this is certainly looking good for HTC, but the device is clearly not selling as well as its main rival the Samsung Galaxy S4, with Samsung claiming to have sold 10 million units.
Will this be enough to save HTC from its financial troubles? There is no question that HTC know how to produce a quality device, so lets hope they can pull themselves back up again.
