No doubt, numbers of HTC’s products are very popular and successful, HTC still is a familiar company worldwide, not a while ago HTC released its flagship device HTC One X that is packed with nice features and specs. Brazil has become the largest country of the smartphones purchasing customers, currently UK is a 4th largest country of smartphones but Brazil will catch this position soon in near future, currently Brazil is at 6th position.
HTC planned to launch their HTC One series for the Brazil country, but now HTC seems to revoke this plan, even HTC is to leave the country totally. HTC had almost twenty seven million smartphone owners and nine million smartphons were sold at 2011. A representative of HTC informed to the AndroidPIT that after analyzing the sales numbers, we have decided to pull out of the Brazilian market.
A biggest mobile company HTC seems to can’t get shares in the country even one percent, in past, their share had good worth but since they stopped the production of their smartphones in the Brazil, their share are continually dropping.
The government of Brazil is punishing all companies that don’t manufacturer their smartphones in their country, the main reason behind this fact can be a taxes, and as you know well that HTC’s smartphone are ever been bit expensive than other competition but their devices are packed with the same hardware.
If you take a look at the history of HTC in the Brazil country, they don’t offer a better and eye-catching phone to the Brazilian customers, but as I said above that they told that they are now planning to launch their One series to the Brazil, HTC One Series smartphones are packed with nice specs, however since they’re not getting better momentum in Brazil, and the flagship device of Korean company the Samsung Galaxy S3 is launching, they’ll do something against it, they’ll stop the sale in the Brazil.
HTC should focus more on their smartphones, but what do you think about this plan of HTC? Do let us know about your thoughts in the below comment section.
