Not all hope is lost as HTC One sales hit 5 million

It has not been a bed of roses these past few days, Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, an unnamed executive noted that “orders are pretty good so far and are still more than what we can supply.” He blames component shortages for the supply issues, and says the company will have a better idea of how its phone is doing next month. HTC has sold “around five million” of its flagship smartphone, the One, since launch.

The main competition Samsung has been able to ship over 10million devices and if the five million figure is true, HTC could bounce back from a string of calamitous financial results. However, given the reportedly poor performance of its Facebook phone, the First that was launched in the US, it may not be enough to reestablish the company’s place in
the top ten global smartphone sales charts.
