It's was a tough year for HTC as annual sales declined 35.24% in 2015
HTC would rather forget all about 2015, if that's alright with you. The HTC One M9 was hardly a factor in the battle for sales among top flagship smartphones, the HTC One A9 was not the "hero" that CEO Cher Wang said it would be, and the jury is still out on the HTC One X9. The latter is another mid-ranger that has been announced, but not yet released.

For December, HTC had sales of $6.52 billion NT ($195.7 million USD) which was a sharp 57.08% decline year-over-year. In December 2014, HTC took in $15.185 billion ($455.9 million USD). On a sequential basis, sales declined 36.64% from the $10.29 billion NT ($308.8 million USD) that HTC garnered in November 2015.

For all of 2015, HTC collected $121.68 billion NT ($3.65 billion USD) in revenue, off 35.24% from 2014's revenue figure of $187.91 billion NT ($5.64 billion USD).

HTC fans are hoping that the rumored HTC One M10 gets the company back on track. We have been hearing since last summer about a phablet with a 6-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution, powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. This might be the One M10, which just might hit the market sometime after the first quarter of the year, perhaps in April.

The company is also hoping that its VR headset, the HTC Vive, brings home the bacon in 2016. The product should launch in April.

Thanks for the tip!
