HTC is an award winning tech company that is best known for its HTC One smartphone series. Back in October of last year, the company announced it was developing the next phone in the HTC One series called the “HTC One A9.” This phone is said to have a very innovative design which integrates the latest version of the Google Android operating system into the mix. So you have a beautiful design on the outside and the newest features of the Android 6.0 on the inside, also known as Marshmallow.
HTC is a pioneer in the smartphone community. It is the company known for creating the very first smartphone to have the Android operating system on it. It is also the first company to have created a Windows smartphone and a 4G smartphone as well. Now, they are the first company to create a Smartphone that is all metal. HTC works hard to stay ahead of the competition by trying to be the most innovative tech company out of the numerous others that are out there. The HTC One A9 gives consumers everything they want to have in a smartphone. It has an attractive exterior design, great performance, new helpful features and the ability to completely control the experience you have with your phone. With its all-metallic body, it will be a very durable phone as well. This means if you accidentally drop your phone then you are less likely to have any irreversible damage done to the interior of it.
The HTC One A9 has 1080p color quality, an energy efficient 5-inch screen and high definition visuals. With all of this, you will get 40% more color in your picture than what you would get from a traditional LCD screen. If you are interesting in having a high quality rear camera to take pictures with, the HTC One A9 has a 13 megapixel camera that includes Optical Image Stabilization. That way people with shaky hands won’t have as much shakiness in their video when it is recording. The Optical Image Stabilization works to correct the vibrations caused by the shakiness. As a result, you will have a clear picture with complete stabilization.
If you are interested in purchasing the new HTC One A9 then you can do so at the company’s website: HTC.com. The total price is $499.99. You can choose from four different colors for the phone’s all-metallic body. These colors include gray, silver, gold and red.
In the sixth straight quarter income losses, HTC shows no improvement in their numbers. The Taiwanese phone maker posts just another quarterly decline in revenue; this time its 98 percent drop in quarterly earnings. From projected NT$600 million ($20 million) HTC made just NT$85 million ($2.8 million). This is the lowest quarterly profit for HTC recorded by Bloomberg. The HTC revenue dropped by 37 percent compared to NT$42.8 billion ($1.42 billion) in the same quarter in 2012.
HTC had recently released it’s newest flagship android smartphone HTC One, after a month of delay due to some camera parts. Peter Chou, the CEO of HTC, is hoping that HTC One will make up for the loss of momentum before Samsung’s Galaxy S IV release on April 26th. The Taiwanese company lost over 70 percent of its market value comparing to its peak in 2010.
“HTC One’s production shortage means lost sales in the first quarter will be lost forever, not just delayed,” Lu Chia- lin, a Taipei-based analyst at Daiwa Securities who rates the stock hold, said before the earnings announcement. “HTC One has a good design, and they still have lead time ahead of the S4, so revenue has a good chance to rebound this quarter.”

Despite critical acclaim, the One range of handsets has been struggling to attract buyers, a problem generally attributed by observers to the runaway success of Samsung Galaxy range of devices.
Amazon has cut the buy-in on the HTC One X flagship handset to $80 on contract, and the upcoming release of a new iPhone is hurting interest in the One range.
But HTC is fighting back, planning to release One X+ in the coming weeks, complete with a 1.7GHz Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, and a large-screened 5-inch phone with a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel display sometime this fall.
Speculations are that US embargo of HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE in US at least heavily contributed the profit plummet of HTC in Q2. Let’s hope for a better day.
