More Photos Leaked HTC X 9: The End of a Strategy or Repetition of The Move?

They are days of annual balance sheets and if we think HTC we will not get too positive. Holders that the Taiwanese company accumulates in 2015 are anything less promising and long time placed on a tightrope for the mobile market. At the moment they do not surrender, however, and in fact recently we saw how its possible next smartphone protruded, HTC One X 9.

It was notably one of the leaks that occasionally dripping of the certifier TEENA, in that we saw the aspect that will have this terminal whose features we later knew thanks to supposed leaks that they were being published from @evleaks. This time it comes via PhoneArena are some images that would be the launch of HTC.

Launch surprise?

By the characteristics that we saw this terminal from HTC It would not correspond with the top that calendar should present the company in a few months (in the MWC), since we do not know which processor would mount exactly if we see that it would be 2 GB, Unlike the 3 GB that already incorporated the HTC One M9, its latest flagship in addition also splitting 32 GB of storage. In fact, the so-called terminal would be very similar to the HTC One E9 + in terms of specifications.

It would therefore a new terminal range medium whose market do not know, since in some cases like that you mentioned One E9 + it’s releases with availability restricted to some countries such as India and China. The leaked photos Nor let see if it’s a plastic terminal or includes the metal so it would fit in the apparent trend of a range average premium. In this way, you remain against its potential rivals by features.

The voluble half of HTC range

More than one month ago we knew of the latest quarterly results from the company, which along with the usual tonic over the past years continued to be positive. There we have a review of the history of Taiwanese economic both at the level of strategies, highlighting some decisions that eventually saw that they weren’t too successful as a possible excess at the continuum level design which in fact is a sign of identity (especially in their stop-range).

Something that acknowledged the company is some forgotten by middle range to focus efforts and resources on the top. This occurred in 2013, so the company assured that in the next year could be more attention to this section, in order to get more sales and improve revenues. And although we saw the launch of several Desire and more basic (and economic) versions One M8 finally not would provide nor desired thrust.

The strategy of this year does not seem to have differed much from the previous

However, the strategy of this year does not seem to have differed much from the former: a continuist flagship and several mid-range restricted sales during the year as the One M8s HTC or HTC One A9 and an extension of the Desire range. And in the absence of seeing the effect of sales of HTC A9 initially the results nor would have been precisely satisfactory.

Change that fails and other routes

More mysterious if cabe is HTC roadmap since submission of its last quarterly balance sheet announced that it put an end to the informations concerning their future plans. Interpretations of this decision do not augur nothing positive whatsoever and in fact understood at the enterprise level as an indirect but noticeable sign of weakness.

Do not know then if the HTC X 9, confirmed, would be the first of a repetition of plans or the last of a strategy expires while date we concerns their presentation at the beginning of the 2016 at least (counting time since passed by TEENA and to be ending the year without having any official announcement). Certainly what already seems clear is that the brand needs more than renew style to gather the attention of potential customers.

Especially taking into account competition, which is not only very strong level of range stops (where HTC needs and long a powerful claim), but that might cater to the apparent range average premium that seems to be settling. Are not bad in fact weapons of the company, for example looking at the HTC One A9, but still could serve something more to the starting price, another hallmark of the counterproductive company in this case terminals.

At the moment we have this filtration and we are approaching the time that traditionally mark has presented its flagship, as it aims to take 820 Snapdragon. HTC is also working in the field of virtual reality, although the sale of its live HTC still delaying this time until April 2016. We’ll see if between one area and another next year the company changes the streak of the previous.
