HTC One Facing Delayed Launch Due To Supply Problems

X

It’s been hailed as the smartphone with a hero camera for 2013, now it has emerged HTC is struggling to deliver their highly praised HTC One smartphone due to component supply problems.According to new reports out of Taiwan, HTC is having trouble getting hold of parts that make up the device’s UltraPixel camera; a move that could result in the product launch being delayed in Australia. Despite promises made at the recent launch, review samples of the new smartphone have not been made available yet.

Android Authority said over the weekend that channel checks from KGI Securities had found HTC was unable to secure crucial components that go into its forthcoming flagship device. The voice coil motor (VCM) and compact camera module (CCM) that go into the One’s UltraPixel camera are said to be the components threatening to limit supply.

One KGI analyst says yield rates for those camera components are between 20 and 30 percent. With yield rate that low, KGI says HTC may only be able to ship 800,000 to 1.2 million One units in the months after its March 22 release.

When SmartHouse saw the new device recently, we were impressed with the build quality and several of its new stand-out features. The UltraPixel camera, which is giving HTC trouble in production, is capable at taking pictures in low light settings.

HTC is counting on the One to improve its standing in the smartphone market. Once the top Android handset maker, HTC has since haemorrhaged share to Samsung, which, along with Apple, now dominates the overall smartphone market.
