HTC distances itself from Samsung, reduces part orders
So what remains for little HTC but to stop feeding its competitor then. This may be the reason why HTC has decided to distance itself from its competitor by starting to purchase smartphone parts from other companies. For example, HTC will no longer partner with Samsung for the supply of its CMOS camera sensors. Instead, it will be buying them from OmniVision and Sony. In addition, a part of the AMOLED screen supply will now be taken by AU Optronics. However, since HTC is said to be worried that AU Optronics may not be able to deliver enough AMOLED production, part of the supply will still be produced by Samsung.
We can understand HTC for wanting to distance itself from Samsung. After all, who'd want its business to be dependent on one of its biggest competitors?
