With large help from their impressive group of mid-ranged devices, HTC is seeing its largest revenue growth in three years, according to Bloomberg. Sales have climbed to NT$47.9 billion ($1.5 billion US dollars) for the fourth quarter last year, NT$5 billion more than last year.
HTC’s Nexus 9, which is its premier tablet marking its devotion to the tablet industry in the future, One M8 and quality mid-range devices have differentiated itself from the strong competition from Apple, Samsung and the rising Xiaomi dominance in China.
The company posted an operating profit of NT$180 million for the quarter, much better than predictions of a NT$30.4 million loss. While quarterly sales have rose, the annual revenue is still short of what is was four years ago.
A few days ago, HTC executive Jeff Gordon promised “huge surprises” are coming in 2015 that will “blow you away”.
Typical corporate investing hype? Or does HTC have something very special planned for us this year. Time will tell as the company is expected to unveil its One M9 flagship phone, as well as a certain type of wearable later this year.
