HTC sales make a slight bump up in the US market
HTC has posted its numbers for July and although the overall earnings are less than compared to last years HTC saw an increase in the US market according to the research firm comScore. While ranked fifth in the US market, HTC has managed to draw closer to the fourth ranked US manufacturer, Motorola. Manufacturers ahead of these two include, LG, Samsung, and Apple.
HTC can give thanks to the increase in market share to the sales of the HTC One series phones that hit three of the 4 major carriers in the US. Technically, the phone that went to Sprint was renamed and given a kickstand to keep the Evo name alive, but it includes the same major components that make up an HTC One phone like the processor and signature camera chip.
Recently, the Taiwan based company withdrew handset sales from a couple countries, because the market share was too little to continue investing there and even returned a percent of share holding to the company that controls Beats Audio in an effort to preserve funds. Hopefully, with the asset realignment mentioned above, HTC will continue to make and release its beautiful and unique handsets in the US for all of us to enjoy.
The HTC One series is still a fierce competitor in the US. Surprisingly, AT&T has already dropped the price of the HTC One X to $99 for eligible customers and T-Mobile is preparing to release a quad-core version of the HTC One X on their network.
