HTC has recently posted its lowest quarterly profits since 2006, showing a 79% reduction in revenue from the same period last year. Although the Taiwanese manufacturer has released some very impressive devices such as the HTC One X, it seems that competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 4S are proving too tough to beat.
While 2012 has clearly not been HTC’s year, the tables may soon turn back in the favour of what has been one of the most prominent smartphone manufacturers over the last few years, thanks to a number of exciting handsets which are soon to be released.
HTC is to be one of the first manufacturers to offer new smartphones showcasing Windows Phone 8, the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS. The HTC 8X and HTC 8S look like they will be able to make an impact in this market which has considerably less competition than Android powered devices.

Another head turning handset which HTC has in the pipeline is the HTC DLX. What’s interesting about this device is its 5 inch high definition screen. This will be HTC’s first attempt in the ‘phablet’ market, and is clearly aimed at rivalling the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The original Galaxy Note has so far sold over 12 million units, although its potential popularity was questioned by many before the device was first released. However, the popularity of its large screen format has proven to be a hit with consumers, so this has made by HTC to offer their own attempt at this sort of device, which bridges the gap between phones and tablets, hence the term ‘phablet’.
The spec list of the device looks very appealing. Along with the aforementioned screen, the handset is rumoured to pack a 12 megapixel camera and a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor along with Android’s latest Jellybean software.
We’re still waiting for an official launch date for the HTC DLX, but we will keep you posted once we know more.
