HTC's revenue for July plummets down, decreasing HTC One (M8) sales most likely to blame

HTC's revenue plummets down in July
Several days ago, we shared the news that HTC itself is pretty pessimistic about its Q3 financial outcome, because the HTC One (M8) flagship won't be capable of rivaling Samsung's and Apple's soon-to-be-refreshed lineup any more. The company's financial report for July is out, and it seems that the fears might be real – HTC's revenue for the month nosedived to depths that have not been seen in five months' time.

The company scored just $353 million (NT$10.6 billion) during the period, which is substantially lower than the $730 million (NT$21.91 billion) that were brought home. Back in July 2013, HTC accounted for $523 million (NT$15.72 billion). We are talking about a pretty serious, roughly 50%-decrease in profits here, which is nothing else but alarming for the struggling smartphone maker. Things were rather different just a month ago, when HTC reported that it has succeeded bringing home bigger profits in Q2 2014, more than in the three quarters before it.

You might remember that HTC didn't find its place among the manufacturers with the most prominent presence in Q2 2014, as some local Chinese brands, such as Xiaomi, Lenovo, and Huawei, have already settled on the market and eaten most of HTC's already diminishing market share. And as market share goes down, profits are bound to go down as well.
