The initial half of this year for Taiwanese company HTC has not become the half-year the firm had hoped for. They did release the HTC One M9, their latest flagship, and looked confident prior to the launch of the device. The truth is, most of the marketplace appeared to be confident in the One M9, mainly thanks to the amount of leaks and rumors ahead of the start. But, that was not the case when the smartphone was announced rather, speculations appeared to turn to disappointment, which in turn, turned to a substantially lower amount of earnings due to poor sales than HTC anticipated.
