Analysts said yesterday that the performance of HTC (宏達電) in the fourth quarter depends on the market's reaction to its two new five-inch screen smart phones.
The stock price of HTC yesterday rose after the opening of the market. At the end of trading, however, HTC's stock price returned the previous day's level.
HTC plans to launch its HTC J Butterfly in Japan and HTC One DLX in North America by the end of this year.
Currently, there are few smart phones with five-inch screens in Japan, analysts said.
Only Samsung and Sharp have smart phones with five-inch screens in Japan, and the HTC J Butterfly is the first smart phone with a 1080p mode screen, according to analysts.
HTC J Butterfly uses Super LCD 3 technology for its screen. The highest resolution is 440 ppi. The cellphone is equipped with a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor.
The HTC One DLX is expected to be launched in North America in the middle of November. The cellphone is the first phone with a five-inch screen in the One series. The HTC One DLX screen also uses a 1080p mode, and the phone also uses a quad-core processor.
Analysts said these upcoming HTC smart phones can be considered high-end products.
