There’s nothing like a new slew of products to light the fire under your sales charts.
Smartphone maker HTC has had an impressive May 2013 with sales jumping a stellar 47.9%, according to reports, on the back of its new HTC One smartphone.
By comparison, HTC’s revenue over the first five months of 2013 is said to be done by 29% compared with the same period last year. But so well is the One being received that the company expects to see sales of the phone peak over the one-million mark for the June quarter. (That’s still a long way behind Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and S4 sales rates but you’d take a 47.9% sequential increase any day).
The HTC One is a 4.7-inch Android 4.2.2 phone with true HD (1080×1920-pixel) resolution and a fast quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor ticking over at 1.7GHz.
So far, the HTC One has performed well in sales in Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region, raising speculation that HTC may have found its mojo again after some period in the smartphone design wilderness.
The company is expected to be busy throughout the rest of the year with a new One mini plus new models in its popular Desire series.
