Yesterday HTC announced that it is increasing production of the HTC One, as demand for the flagship phone continues to rise month over month. Manufacturing volume will double in May, and increase once more in June, too. HTC North Asia President Jack Tong stated, “We are optimistic about our high-end sales during April and June.”
This news comes just several weeks after we asked whether HTC’s most recent financial are finally starting to turn the company around. As we know, the HTC One had a rocky launch due to supply shortages, and there were even rumors that HTC’s suppliers weren’t taking the company seriously anymore. Obviously, this seems to be changing.
HTC’s still not even in the same ballpark as its largest Android competitor Samsung, but the HTC One has generally gotten very good reviews from critics and consumers alike, with many giving the HTC One a slight edge over Samsung’s new flagship, the Galaxy S4.
Of course, only time will tell if HTC is really headed toward a full recovery, or if this is all just a bunch of false hope. Personally, I’m rooting for HTC to keep it up, but we will see.[Focus Taiwan via ZDNet]
