 HTC closes the official community Android first man and officially exits the stage


In February 7th, according to a notice issued by HTC, its official community was officially closed today. If users want to continue interacting with HTC phones, they need to switch to the WeChat public number HTC official service number.

This is the fall of another giant in the mobile phone industry after the news that BlackBerry has stopped selling.

According to the public information, HTC, whose full name is HTC International Electronics Co., Ltd., was founded in May 1997, is a mobile tablet computer manufacturer located in Taiwan, China. As the representative of Android, HTC is the first mobile phone brand to try Android system. Htcg1, the first Android mobile phone in the world, was launched by HTC in September 2008. HTC series mobile phones are equipped with Android system and windowphone dual system. The nexus series cooperated with Google official is also known as a generation classic.

HTC used to be the king of the smartphone camp, with considerable market share performance in the global mobile market. According to IDC data, HTC reached the peak of market share in 2011, with mobile phone sales of about 43.5 million, HTCs global market share of 9%, ranking fifth in the world.

With the best-selling mobile phones, HTCs market value in 2011 was more than 200 billion yuan, higher than that of Nokia and rim, and the market value of HTC among mobile phone manufacturers was second only to that of apple.

After the glory, HTC fell down rapidly. After htconnem7 mobile phone, HTC gradually lost its market.

On the one hand, HTC is facing patent lawsuits from apple, intellictwireless, Nokia, Nichia chemical and other companies; on the other hand, HTCs bet on Windows Phone system fails. When ov, Xiaomi and Huaweis mobile phones rise to occupy the market, HTC, as a Taiwan enterprise, does not attach importance to the mainland market, and finally fails.

In 2014, HTC sued Jinli and Meizu to the Beijing Intellectual Property Court, accusing them of patent infringement. HTC requested the court to award Meizu 30 million yuan of economic loss, the court to award Jinli 24 million yuan of economic loss, and paid 1.6 million yuan of royalties during the temporary protection period. But in the end, HTC received only 6.4 million yuan in compensation.

In 2017, HTC sold the pixel team to Google, but kept its own brand. Since then, HTC has stopped releasing new products, and the brand has become increasingly silent. Meanwhile, HTC has turned to VR equipment development, with its htcvive unit selling 200000 units in 2018.

Htcvive is favored for its lighter advantages. According to Superdata, in 2018, htcvive sold 200000 sets worldwide, and htcvivefacus sold 100000 sets. Its developer version was announced online in 2015. First mover advantage has brought market for it. On steam, the worlds largest game platform, you can experience the virtual reality game using htcvive function.

Compared with mobile phones, HTC is more like a VR company now. However, after the so-called VR first year in 2017, the virtual reality industry has not ushered in an explosion, and HTCs performance has also ushered in a precipice like decline. Its revenue in 2019 is less than one fortieth of the peak period.

According to HTCs financial report, in 2019, the companys total revenue was NT $10.01 billion, about NT $2.326 billion, down 57.82% year-on-year, 87% year-on-year, the worst year since HTC was founded in 19 years. As a comparison, in the peak period of 2011, HTCs annual revenue reached NT $465.8 billion, or about NT $100.74 billion. HTC has lost the opportunity to compete with other domestic mobile phones due to the mistakes in decision-making, the neglect of the mainland market, and the poor management and control of the supply chain. This closure of the user community means that HTC can no longer provide services to users, and also means that HTCs mobile phone business officially exits the stage. At present, the website of HTC community has been unable to be opened, and the official HTC flagship stores of jd.com and tmall.com have been closed.
