Although there aren’t official concrete sales numbers released on the Nexus 6P, it is a safe to say that the flagship earned explosive sales. It could be a large contributor to the fact that Huawei has overtaken Xiaomi to be the third largest OEM in the world.
Does that set a high benchmark for HTC to meet in the next three years, if indeed the company is taking over the Nexus series? Definitely.
There have been reports by numerous sources that HTC is going to be producing two Nexus flagships for 2016, the first being a Nexus 5X 5.1-inch successor and the other a 5.5-inch one to follow up Nexus 6P.
HTC isn’t used to the kind of success that the 2015 Nexus duo have been achieving, and it’s bad enough that it’s having a hard time keeping afloat the success that the first two HTC One flagships have earned.
After an initial boom in sales from the launch of the HTC One M8, the company has been trying to get some traction as it continues to slip further down an increasingly steep slope.
The Nexus 5X and 6P, each having received new updates that fix issues and boost performance, don’t look like losing favor in the mobile community anytime soon.
Do you think HTC could do a good job on the next few Nexus smartphones? We don’t doubt that the OEM builds robust hardware, but it’s often the finer points that prove a stumbling block to the brand.
