It looks like we have been ready for HTC’s inevitable retirement from the cellular business for about… a century now, however whereas LG not too long ago sealed the destiny of its perennially money-wasting smartphone division, the Taiwan-based firm insists it is not useless but.
Although there aren’t any phrases on the names, specs, options, or costs of the aforementioned “new 5G models” deliberate for Q2 2021 bulletins, these will undoubtedly cater to the identical audiences throughout the identical areas. So, no, you most likely should not maintain your breath for official US availability of any kind this yr.
What’s maybe much more painful to see is that the corporate’s microscopic March 2021 income end result truly marked a 5.2 and 99.7 (!!!) % enchancment from the identical determine reported in March 2020 and February 2021 respectively.
Overall, nevertheless, HTC began the yr with a worse quarterly income rating than an already modest first three months of 2020. But if you consider it, that really makes the corporate’s smartphone business insistence much more encouraging for these nostalgic concerning the likes of 2013’s HTC One or 2008’s T-Mobile G1.
Basically, if HTC is not dropping by the wayside now, it might by no means achieve this.
