HTC One sales are strong: 5 million sold despite supply issues
Just as Samsung confirmed its Galaxy S4 has become its most popular Android smartphone selling 10 million in less than a month, now HTC also gets bragging rights as its HTC One sold 5 million in almost the same period.

In just about a month of full availability, HTC has sold 5 million One units and while that is half the Samsung number, it is nonetheless an extremely strong showing from a company that is said to be undergoing some tough times.

“Orders are pretty good so far and are still more than what we can supply. This is partly due to the shortage of components. When the issue is resolved next month, we will have a better idea if it's doing really well or not,” an anonymous HTC executive said.

Sales of the HTC One could reportedly have been even higher but because of constant supply issues. We’ve heard it numberous times that the UltraPixel camera was slowing the company down and ruined its plans to outpace Samsung with the launch of its 2013 flagship.

All in all, selling 5 million devices is an encouraging sign for HTC, especially if the company can keep this pace in the coming months.
