With the launch of HTC 10 (the company's best phone yet), they recovered a bit. And now, the same situation is back with the company. Having said that, the company even slashed the price of the HTC 10 in India.
However, now rumors suggest that HTC might sell off their mobile business division due to the inadequate sales of their smartphones. None of us have imagined this coming, but it seems like they are not anymore up to take this shortage of sales.
And, we have the HTC 10, the flagship for 2016 and the vendor's greatest phone yet. However, the HTC 10 was bought by little as we have the much better Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in the same price range.
In the period of 2013 to 2016, the company has launched several mid-range smartphones under their popular Desire series, but none of them impressed the audience and this is because of the much better Chinese smartphones from Xiaomi, LeEco, Coolpad, etc.
This news is coming from a Chinese website as the company has even put their business into the auction, but HTC officially confirmed that they are no talks regarding the business division sale.
That being said, HTC's co-founder, Cher Wang, has already decided to sell off their mobile business earlier this year. A serious question arises now, HTC manufactured the Google Pixel phones and it now means that the Pixel phones aren't up to the mark in terms of sales?
The rumor also states that there are four brands competing for purchasing the HTC's smartphone business division and a Chinese brand is reportedly leading the way. According to HTC, these are just rumors, but it is true that HTC is not up to the mark in recent years, which is due to the vintage of several Chinese brands.
