HTC struggles continues with Q1 revenues down 35 per cent

Facing stiff competition from Apple and Samsung, HTC has recorded a 35 per cent year-on-year drop in revenues as it continues to struggle

 

Having previously dominated the smartphone scene following the launch of the Desire and Wildfire handsets, HTC has struggled to maintain its impressive highs in recent months recording another drop in quarterly sales.

With a number of lacklustre handset offerings that flew largely under the radar in recent months, HTC has revealed that it first quarter revenues were $2.3 billion (£1.5 billion), down almost 35 per cent on the opening three months of 2011 and a continued drop since the company peaked in the middle of last year.

Attempting to quell the slide and return to the top of the smartphone sector, the Taiwanese handset creator has this week official launched its latest flagship Android handset, the specs impressive quad-core CPU touting HTC One X.

Featuring alongside the One X’s 1.5GHz quad-core processor showpiece, the next-generation smartphone is set to play host to a fanciful array of high-end specs with an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording abilities offering up impressive imaging options.

Touting a hefty 4.7-inch touchscreen display with a stunning 1280 x 720p resolution the HTC One X spec is completed by 32GB of internal storage and a respectable 128g form factor.
