HTC may not release its new flagship smartphone to the US market
Analyst at BayStreet Research cliff Maldonado (Maldonado Cliff) suggested that HTC in the new year will not be released to the US market its new flagship smartphone.
Maldonado in his assumption meant the sale of the new flagship of American operators. But, given the specificity of this market, we can hardly expect that HTC will sell a smartphone in other ways, giving up the main.
The assumption is based on the fact that HTC last month dismissed most of the staff, responsible for sales in the United States and does not have the necessary human resources for the promotion of the flagship operators. About other smartphones for the market analyst did not say anything.
However, he also noted that HTC will most probably return to the business model of ODM, that is, to develop and produce smartphones for customers. Including for operators.
