According to a new report from Digitimes, HTC which completed 2018 with a 66% drop in revenue, is now developing its first 5G smartphone. But, unlike some other manufacturers, HTC will not rush to market. We will definitely not see the device at least until the middle of the year, it will be released in the second half.
HTC return this decision to the immature 5G market. However, by the second half of 2019 it is unlikely to “mature”. Whatever it was, the manufacturer is also not going to sit back. The company said that it will primarily develop 5G mobile smart hubs, although it is not very clear what it means by this.
In addition, HTC expects that with the development of the 5G market a new impetus will be given to the virtual and augmented reality market, which should positively affect the company’s business.
