Today, HTC released its unaudited Q4, 2012 financial results and things are still looking bleak for the company. HTC was expected to make a comeback in the Q4 of last year thanks to the strong sales of the DROID DNA and the HTC Butterfly in Japan.
Instead, the company posted its lowest profit ever since 2004 indicating its inability to come up with impressive and “hero” devices since the last two years. For the fourth quarter, HTC’s net income was NT$1 billion, its lowest since 2004. Revenues also dropped to a mere NT$60 billion, again its lowest in the last 11 quarters.
Loyal HTC users and analysts expect HTC to bounce back in 2013 with the launch of some terrific hero devices including the M7, which is going to be based on the DROID DNA/J Butterfly. The HTC J Butterfly also posted some strong sales figure towards the end of December in Japan, which should help its Q1, 2013 financial figures.
