HTC solves its supply issues, HTC One production will double
The HTC One was announced way back in February with the intention of landing on store shelves before the Samsung Galaxy S4 and thus gaining traction and needed momentum, but supply issues plagued the launch for HTC and it was pushed back. Now, three months after the initial announcement HTC has finally worked out its supply kinks and is ready to double production for its HTC One flagship.

The doubling will happen in May compared to April shipments as component shortages will no longer be an issue.

Not just that production of the HTC One will continue growing in June as well to meet what HTC North Asia president Jack Tong says is “strong demand.”

"Our capacity is expected to rise significantly starting from mid-May. We are optimistic about our high-end sales during April and June," Tong said.

HTC officially confirmed it was having issues with supply for its UltraPixel camera, an unconventional 4-megapixe. sensor that had to be manufactured specifically for HTC as no other company is using it.

Alas after talking to a Verizon sales guy I don't think the One is coming. Consistent with leaks and rumors I think the One for Verizon will be the DNA 2 and it won't arrive until fall. Verizon has a solid, well received flagship with the DNA, so they have little incentive to offer the One. The good news is, for Verizon customers who want One style and hardware (stereo speakers and Ultrapixel) with a 5" screen, you're in luck. And it'll be in black.

Not just the comeback for HTC, it's also a comeback for Sony and LG! 2013 is a tough year for these manufacturers!

Comeback is not a term for Sony and LG.. They are starting a very solid android mobile business. HtC was once the face of android, so this is their comeback..

I'd rather chat with Siri instead of chatting with Wendy.

He is just trolling on this site. On the group chat its his really opinions and he doesn't troll there. Besides I met him in real life at KL

Then why Wendy always troll on PA? If you meet him, can you tell him to stop trolling? Being a Samsung fanboy is okay, but don't troll. Can you tell him, please? :)

50. thelegend6657 unregistered

I literally face palmed . He wasn't even a Samsung fan boy , he is trolling like one. That's what a troll do. Trolling on phone arena is his hobby . What difference does that make ? This site is already filled with fan boys and trolls anyway and worst of all kids that knows nothing about technology total different when I joined few years ago

46. thelegend6657 unregistered

Troll we could add you in on our group chat . If you're there as a tech fan , we really don't mind , but if you're there to wreak havoc I will be the first to kick you out

I don't know about Sony. They still don't get much love from the carriers, so Xperia doesn't have the name recognition of Galaxy or HTC. I want the healthy competition, but it's getting tough for smaller players like Sony and LG to stand out. At least we know Google has LG's back.

47. thelegend6657 unregistered

But I am more interested on how Chinese OEM like Oppo vivo and huawei is doing. Sounds more interesting

I hope you are right, it´s much better a lot of strong manufacturers than just one
