HTC will be introducing the its much rumoured HTC M4 smartphone next month, wrote Laura Chen, an analyst at BNP Paribas Securities Taiwan Ltd in a research note to clients. She also added that HTC will be launching the Butterfly successor in early third quarter.
This is not all; the rumoured mega version of “HTC One” also was also present in her note. According Chen, HTC will release a new flagship model with display size as a big as 5.9-inches in second half of 2013. The phone will also pack an upgraded processor, she added, probably indicating towards Snapdragon 800.
She was quite positive about HTC’s outlook in the coming months and rated “buy” on the HTC stock, with a NT$325 (US$10.86) target price.
“While some investors are worried about HTC’s execution ability and the uptake of its planned product launches, we believe there is now a better chance of HTC regaining its momentum,” said Laura Chen.
Chen also added that HTC One will be debuting on Verizon in late June, in line with many rumours that we have been hearing for few weeks.
Seems like, HTC is going to have a busy year beginning next month. The company was surprisingly silent until now. It has only announced two devices for global markets – HTC One and Desire 600 – this year but the number is expected to rise starting June.
