HTC Sees Slight Revenue Increase In November Financials
HTC announced its unaudited November revenue on Thursday morning, and the Taiwanese company has seen a slight improvement over the figures it issued in October. Its new smartphones have helped it rake in NT$21.2 billion (approx. $729 million).
In comparison, HTC saw revenues of NT$17.2 billion ($529 million) in October, and so this month’s figures are certainly headed in the right direction. That’s mostly because of the new handsets HTC has released in recent months, which have been well received by fans and the media.
The HTC J Butterfly became the world’s first smartphone to boast a full high-definition 1080p display when it launched in Japan, and HTC followed that up with the Droid DNA for the U.S., which also featured a full HD display. The company has also seen some success with the 8X, its new Windows Phone 8 handset.
HTC will be glad its revenue is on the up, but it still hasn’t reached the level the company saw over the summer. In July, for example, the company took NT$25 billion (approx. $859 million), while in August it saw NT$24 billion (approx. $825 million).
Its figures could rise again over the holiday period, however, while early 2013 could see the launch of new Android handsets, such as a successor to its popular One X. HTC has previously unveiled new devices at Mobile World Congress, which is held in February.
