The HTC U11 supposedly squeezed in more sales than its predecessors in less than a month

Focus Taiwan reports the new HTC U11 smartphone has already outsold both its predecessors, the HTC M10 and M9, in less than a month on the market. The information comes directly from the president of HTC's smartphone and connected device division, Chang Chia-lin.

According to the director, HTC's smartphone business is facing the challenge of a homogeneous market where increased sales won't always translate to increased profits. As part of its strategy to combat this, HTC is re-focusing is research and development efforts on preparing the launch of 5G services by year 2020.

Additionally, HTC will further reduce its operating costs and limit its new smartphone introductions to three or four devices per year.

In related news, HTC Chairwoman Cher Wang is looking towards a promising financial year for the company. The virtual reality business it has is said to be enjoying an excellent opportunity in a rapid-growing market. Wang claims HTC's Vive headset is considered the best out there, and the company would like to hold onto this position of success and influence.

why surprise? HTC sell 6gb+128gb variant cheaper than Galaxy s8 4gb+64gb
Those who value money whould know to choose.

Also galaxy s8 sold 6gb ram only in china, HTC U11 sold 6gb variant at least 3 countries, in India, only oneplus 3 and HTC U11 offers 6gb RAM, pretty much no competition over there

If you choose your smartphone solely based on storage and RAM, then why are you an iPhone fan? LOL

You use a phone to display a status quo? Isn't that a little silly? It's a phone.

That's extremely incorrect. It was announced way before U11 even hit the market.

Exactly. People dont realise that HTC is at the very bottom. They are under 3% market share and if Im not wrong before U11 they would have been around 1-2%. This might be a slight increase before Note 8 and iPhone 8 come out and obliterate anything.

Are you saying that availability is what prevented the HTC 10 to sell as much as the U11 did in less than a month?

HTC U11 simply has a better appeal (in all senses of the word), so it is proving to be more successful than the HTC 10.

The U11 is also a Sprint exclusive in the US so yes explain more, not to mention you can easily buy it online from HTC themselves eBay or Amazon Soo...

I'm not a fan of the size of the phone, but it looks like the phone is an amazing device. I love the color changing red/gold. Camera is again top notch compared to the competition, and build quality is on point, as has been the case since the One M7. While it's not the new "standard" 18:9 ratio, HTC LCD panels are always great looking. My HTC 10 is awesome, and if the 11 is an improvement (which it sounds like it is), it's very much a device worth having. I'm glad HTC appears to be hitting a home run with this device.
