We all may know that HTC is among the first brands to make Android smartphones in the market but they’ve been on the down low in recent years. Now it’s revealed that they aren’t going to give up just yet.

Yves Maitres, the company’s brand new CEO has stated that they are not giving up on the smartphone business. He has said that they are planning a big comeback, with plans on releasing a high-end smartphone. When exactly? Well when the time is right.

HTC nowadays are known mostly for their VR segment where Yves has said that the company had fallen behind their competitors due to that focus. Adding the fact that they stopped investing in research and development for smartphones, it certainly didn’t help in their cause.

Pokdepinion: As much as I’d like for them to rise again, I honestly don’t know if they can reach the levels of other brands are at right now.

    i really had no idea why htc became like this, they are so great back then when moving from pda to smartphone world, they innovate so much that they have dozens of technology being build first by them, and yet now they are dying in the smartphone department, they have robust and great phone designs that feel nice to touch and has the quality, their sense ui is one of the best android ui, it is pretty and fluid compare to other ui, it is why i have chosen a htc wildfire s rather than the more popular xperia x8 that every young people owned just because of the build quality and software, they are also expensive which granted it is justifiable back then, but when other competitors started getting strong in the game, htc still remains the same, selling under-spec phones with higher price than competitions, and also not improving and giving what the customers/users need, meanwhile samsung kept giving features and function that users really wanted for so long, i think that’s the main downfall of htc, i had no idea what kind of things the CEO of htc are thinking, only last acceptable great phone are htc 10 and exodus which they are special and actually are great, not some generic looking phones with no purpose

      It’s just the way big companies fail.. They think they are too big to fall, but when they do, it’s a long way down…

    I waited htc u11, i got 3.5k ready, release at 4k++, free gifts are a joke too. i was using mi 4. wanted to change so badly then, borrowed my bro’s mi note 4 until i got mate 20 pro for 3.8k, came with wireless charger and useful giftpack. HTC where u now? dxo mark far far behind. Act like apple but not apple. deserved to die like sony.

      Hopefully they see the error in their ways… If not they will just spiral down the drain.

    haiz sad their software is decent from the beginning and even till now they are going the stock cleaner android look which is awesome, i often call htc as the apple of android world, expansive and solid build quality, but they seriously lack in features and specs sometimes and bad camera that ruined them, apple’s iphone at least are all rounder with top notch specs every time, except they still have way less features, but people still love it including me, because it is worth it, second htc phone i owned is desire 600, an under-performing quadcore 1.2ghz phone but with the great sense ui, the ui never lag but when playing games oh hell no lag asf, camera is awful as always, but the great thing that htc first innovated? the boom sound front speaker is amazing i still love it, sadly got stolen by my friends and he never return back, i would gladly use it as my mp3 player, then i bought a htc one m8 refurbish unit earlier this year, the metal body with antenna line htc created and copied by iphone 6 series, but sadly i overheated the damn phone because i download mobius final fantasy overnight and the game running after download completed, to make it worse the phone is beside me when sleeping and i accidentally covers it with my blanket, so it overheated to death, only realized it in the morning when i accidentally touched the phone and freaking burned my hand for a second, temperature is well over 80-90c and it’s a metal body so…..lucky it didn’t explode in my face lmao
