We finally have some news about HTC that’s not awful! It seems like it’s been years since anything has gone right for the company, but right now it looks like the HTC 10 is hitting its stride and is beating internal expectations, at least in Taiwan. All of this comes from Jack Tong, president of HTC in North Asia.
That’s not quite as good as if it was crushing the competition globally, but considering HTC is based out of Taiwan, it’s important that they do well in their home market. If they fail there, their chances of succeeding in most other markets will diminish.
Fortunately this means HTC should post a better than expected second quarter in Taiwan for this year, which hopefully translates into success in other markets.
Interestingly, it does look like HTC is gaining ground in Japan, especially with their red tinted HTC 10. Roughly 44% of all HTC 10 phones sold in Japan were camellia red colored, making it by far the most popular color.
While the HTC 10 probably won’t be knocking Samsung off the Android throne just yet, we found it to be a solid phone that should keep HTC competitive in the market.
