We’ve heard tons of great news in the past months, and to be honest this year is turned out to be one of the most exciting ones in my opinion and it seems that the fun has just begun, with Xiaomi collaborating with Google, Android Oreo getting launched and now this news comes out of nowhere for us. Apparently, Google buying HTC’s Smartphone Business, let’s take a more detailed look into that.
About Google Buying HTC’s Smartphone Business
HTC had their ups and downs in 2011 which may have resulted into this. We’ve heard rumors about this in the past that Google and HTC were in talks with each other but it was just speculation, but this time it seems to be in the last stage of the deal.
A report from a Taiwanese news outlet named Commercial Times states that Google is in the final stages of acquiring all or a part of one of the world’s largest smartphone maker HTC. This post follows the rumors from last year when HTC was interested in a sale.
It’s not a first time for Google as you may be aware of Google’s relation with Motorola or you may call it ‘Googorola’. Since then, Motorola seems to be getting more successful year by year. We got to experience some of the great products by this duo, like Moto X, Moto 360 and much more. Later, Google sold Motorola to Lenovo for a whopping $2.91 billion in the year 2014.
There’s no denying that Google had been using HTC for manufacturing its own products, the Pixel and Pixel XL which turned out be the talk of the town, well we were all expecting that.
HTC’s Virtual Reality line the HTC Vive won’t be a part of this particular deal.Google is not focused on buying HTC’s Smartphone Business.
There are two things which could happen, Google might either end the company completely by switching its focus to its own product Pixel or they may keep the company and get them starting fresh just like they did with Motorola.
Both Google and HTC have declined to comment on this report as of now on the HTC’s Smartphone Business, let’s see what’s more to come.
Although Commercial Times haven’t provided any source for this report, shares of the company have dropped compared to last year. We will be updating the post if we get to know more about this matter.
