HTC’s “consolidated revenues” apparently saw a promising growth in the run up to the month of November. Recently released HTC One A9 has been quoted as the reason behind the sudden growth.
Overall, HTC’s revenue reportedly rose by 14.96 percent to a 6-month high of $314.32 million in the time period of November, according to Phone Arena citing Digi Times. HTC released the One A9 with impressive design and top-of-the-shelf configurations in October. The icing on the cake, however, is the mid-range price tag. Looks like, HTC was finally able to strike a balance between killer design, cutting-edge configurations and an affordable price tag.
Not to forget, HTC recently offered “Holiday Hot Deals” to the U.S. customers. The company sold the HTC One A9 for $400 and the HTC One M9 for $455 in November. The original price of the A9 is $500 and the flagship M9 is $650.
In any case, the year-over-year revenue specific to November reportedly decreased by a whopping 39.25 percent. Upon comparing the 11-month sales, HTC only managed to amass $3.5 billion in 2015, which is apparently down by 33.32 percent in the same time period in 2014.
Nevertheless, if HTC can keep up the pace of One A9 sales targeting the upcoming holiday season, the company can post much stronger revenue in the coming months.
Meanwhile, HTC’s VP Mo Versi confirmed via a tweet that, the Taiwanese tech giant will be rolling out the “Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow” update to One A9 sometime in December. With an assured Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, the One A9 is easily one of the best devices released recently.
The device boasts a metallic exterior with a 5.0-inch display and 1080p screen resolution. Under the hood, the HTC One A9 is powered by an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 617) processor with 3 GB of RAM. The handset sports a killer 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit with OIS support, in addition to a 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing snapper for selfies. Other features include a 2,150 mAh battery cell, 32 GB of native storage, microSD card support and a fingerprint sensor.
