HTC Generates $730 Million in November Due to Smartphones

HTC experienced an increase in sales by more than 20 percent in November, with the smartphone maker generating $730 million.

The figure represents an increase of 23.3 percent when compared to the revenue generated during October.

The Taiwanese company has launched a number of handsets during the latter stages of 2012, including the One X+, 8X, 8S and Droid DNA.

However, despite a strong November in the market, HTC is still considerably down on revenue in 2012 when compared to the previous year. Total revenue for the year is still down by 39 percent compared to the same time last year.

Looking forward, recent reports have suggested that HTC is planning to release a new flagship smartphone during the first quarter of 2013 in the form of the M7. The device is said to boast a 5-inch HD display, a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor and a 13 megapixel camera.

    And yet they can't even update their phones. I know the Incredible wasn't so Incredible when it came to updates and will be the last HTC phone I buy.

    I've never understood why people complain about not getting a Android update, I root every Android phone I have and keep them all up to date. Also, if you are in the states I recommend you blame your phone carrier, not the manufacturer.


    OT: I believe HTC made a lot of money because they decided to go the SIM based route for their Butterfly(Verizon's DNA). I have T-Mobile as my carrier and I bought a Droid DNA from Verizon and so far haven't regretted anything! Amazing phone, amazing features and so much possibilities for future custom ROMs! Also scoring a 8,300 on Quadrant ;D

    Keep up the good work HTC! Been using a HTC HD2 for years now, finally decided to settle down on a new phone(:

    I've owne a Motorolla Droid and now have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Am seriously considering buying something that takes great pictures. If the Nexus 4 can take better pictures than Galaxy Nexus I'm sold. If the difference is minimal then I'll see what HTC's 13 Megapixel beast can do.

    My Galaxy Nexus already takes better photos than my HP 2MP camera.
    Why own a camera if you can gets a phone that can do the job adequately?
