HTC working hard to gain profit in the global market from its latest flagship smartphone, HTC One. The Taiwanese manufacturer unveiled the HTC One smartphone back in the month of February and since then the company was facing shortage of core components. According to our earlier report, the Taiwanese manufacturer was facing a huge shortage of core components required for the flagship smartphone and now the concern is moving in the direction to improve its position positively in the global market.
According to a news report by Focus Taiwan, Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia has stated that the company will double the production capacity of the HTC One from the mid-May and further increase the capacity in the month of June to meet the demand adequately.
At a news conference, Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia said;
“Our capacity is expected to rise significantly starting from mid-May. We are optimistic about our high-end sales during April and June.”
The Taiwanese manufacturer has stated that it has got lower revenue than the assumption during the first quarter of the year 2013 because of difference between demand and supply of the HTC One units in certain markets. The concern is stepping forward to improve the production capacity in order to equalize the demand and supply difference.
HTC is also focusing on the earlier launched 5-inch smartphone HTC Butterfly. According to the manufacturer, the sales of the HTC Butterfly increased by 50 percent in Japan since on-contract price of the smartphone reduced to zero two weeks ago. To earn more from the sales of HTC Butterfly, the manufacturer is set to release Sense 5.0 UI for the smartphone which was earlier solely available on the HTC One. HTC is planning to add the BlinkFeed live-streaming home screen and the slide show function for the camera, in its HTC Butterfly smartphone.
