Chou says that HTC has been spending money on R&D so that it can build innovative new smartphones. Most would consider the HTC One a good start for the manufacturer. With a metallic uni-body build and a sleek and sexy design, most high-end Android shoppers have the HTC One in the picture when deciding which new phone to buy. The device also features the BlinkFeed streaming video home screen, the BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers, Zoe and an UltraPixel camera.
There is speculation that we will see an HTC One mini in addition to a large sized version of the device that is code named the T6. Already announced is the "Google Edition" (Sense-less) nearly stock Android version of the phone that integrates Beats Audio. That model will launch Wednesday from the Google Play Store for $599. There is also the developer edition of the phone, which comes with an unlocked bootloader and is priced at $649 for U.S. residents only.
One phone on the market now is not going to get HTC up to a 15% market share. While Chou didn't mention a time frame with his prediction, it might be several years and a lot of hard work before the executive can say that his prediction has come true.
