The HTC One mini was announced earlier this year, but it seems that HTC might be running into some issues with regards to the production of the casings for the handset, which some believe has led to poor third quarter sales for the company. As it stands, HTC is only selling about 200,000 units of the HTC One mini every month which might seem like a huge number for the layman, is definitely not great as far as manufacturers are concerned, at least compared to tech giants such as Samsung or Apple who managed to sell 9 million iPhone units over the weekend alone.
Analysts predict that if HTC does not manage to get their supply chain “fixed”, it could lead to pretty grim results in Q3. In any case HTC has been struggling for quite a while now so this does not come as a complete surprise. In fact there have been rumors that HTC could be creating a new operating system designed specifically for the Chinese market which could help them gain some market share in the future, especially since the market at the moment is being dominated by Samsung and Apple. Either way Q3 for HTC is expected to end next week, so we guess we won’t have to wait too long to see how big of a loss HTC will be posting.
