Almost 10 years after its launch, about 200,000 people still use a Xiaomi Mi 2

In an unexpected turn of events, HTC is stepping out of the hole


The Taiwanese company has a two-month positive balance sheet for the first time in three years.

In recent times we are experiencing the curious phenomenon of companies that we believed had passed away rising from its ashes. A good example of this is Motorola, which after being bought by Lenovo has grown like foam to the point of being fully profitable again.

Well, it seems that HTC he wants to repeat his steps and, according to the data of the last months, he is on the right path to achieve it. The company has reported a turnover of 21.96 million dollars last December, which represents a growth of 1% taking into account the same period last year. It may seem like little but, taking into account the very hard year that most companies have gone through, and themselves, it is a positive symptom.

November, for its part, was also a first glimmer of hope, with a turnover of 19.8 million dollars and 0.96% more compared to November 2019.

HTC comes to life, and this will be its new Desire 21 Pro 5G

A difficult 2020 that improves in extremis

2020 was a difficult year for everyone, companies and people. Very few have been saved from the burning, although there were some, there is no more to see Xiaomi. In any case that was not the tonic. The decrease in sales was global and HTC was not spared either, although his it was coming from afar.

Why do we say that? Why in 2019 he reaped fall after fall, something that presaged a near end. As can be seen in its financial report, 2020 did not change course and revenues continued to plummet until November.

In the last two months of the year the Taiwanese company seems to have taken flight, accumulating two consecutive months in positive for the first time in a long time. In fact, to see something like that, we would have to go back to February-March 2017.

Now all you need see if this upward trend holds. For now, HTC would have already laid the first stone in its goal of resurgence with the HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G. Whether he can fully build his path is still too early to say.
