taipei - HTC is likely to get big news on Thursday. The company does not want to say what it's all about, but according to a Bloomberg reporter, it has already stopped trading in shares around the announcement.
There are rumors that Google is planning to take over HTC. The Taiwanese make the Pixel smartphone for Google. Blogger Evan Blass, generally introduced well, says that Google takes over HTC parts, but HTC remains a brand.
High Tech Computer, abbreviated HTC, was founded in 1997. It released the first Android phone in 2008. In those years, the company became one of the major smartphone manufacturers in the world, but after that it began to decay. HTC has difficulty competing with industry people. The market share fell from more than 10 percent to no more than 2 percent, the value of the company became four times as small as a few years.
Due to the problems that last month, HTC expressed concern about a takeover or split-off of, for example, the virtual reality branch.
