HTC was ambitious when they decided to take on GoPro with their HTC Re. The action cam didn’t gain much traction due to lack of features and a high price point. Now it looks like HTC is trying to get rid of its stock.
On HTC’s online store, you can now pick up the HTC Re for just $50. That’s 75% off the original $200 price tag. No word yet on whether this price will trickle down to other retailers that are selling the Re. Amazon still lists it for about $100 and Best Buy still offers it for $150. The Re is a respectable offering into the action cam arena, but it was obviously a first gen product from HTC. The price was too high and customers shied away in favor of more well-established products like the GoPro.
The HTC Re has a periscope like frame that holds a 16MP camera. The device is waterproof and has a Micro SD card slot. You can connect to iOS and Android Apps to control the camera and there are optional accessories you can pick up to increase functionality or for mounting.
Is this crazy price drop enough to get you interested in the HTC Re? Let us know down in the comments if you pick one up.
