HTC did well with its HTC One M8 smartphone and now according to a recent report, sales of the handsets successor, the HTC One M9 are lower than expected.
The news comes from HTC’s supply chain, HTC may lower their orders of components for their HTC One M9 smartphone by around 30%.
HTC may cut its orders for related parts and components for its flagship smartphone, the HTC One M9, by as much as 30% due to lower-than-expected sales for the model in the end-market, according to sources at Taiwan’s handset supply chain.
HTC has yet to announce any sales figures for its new One M9 smartphone, one possible reason for lower sales of the handset could be the display resolution, the handset has a Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, many of the handsets competitors feature a Quad HD display.
HTC recently launched a Quad HD version of the device for the Chinese market, the HTC One M9+ and this could have also impacted on the sales of the HTC One M9.
