According to mobile industry analysts cited by DigiTimes, a number of smartphone makers including LG, HTC and Huawei may be on track to lose valuable market share in 2014. This is a result of the low sales of the makers’ flagship models.
The undisclosed analyst says that the HTC One sales have been flat since its launch in late March 2013 despite the phone’s awards and recognition.
LG, too, is facing difficulties as it hoped the G2 flagship to score them 2013 sale figures north of 10 million units. The reality, however, is that the phone only managed to reach 2 million sales.
Huawei is doing better than LG with its Ascend P6 smartphone. The Chinese maker sold 3 million units.
