HTC released its third-quarter earnings today and announced a drop in net income to NT$3.9 billion ($133 million). The company’s net income is down from NT$7.4 billion in the quarter before and NT$18.68 billion during the same time last year. HTC announced revenue for the third quarter of NT$70.2 billion, missing analysts’ estimates from Bloomberg, as operating income declined 76 percent to NT$4.9 billion. HTC is certainly hoping its recently unveiled HTC One X+ might help it gain back some marketshare in Q4 as the device rolls out across Europe, Asia, and eventually the U.S. According to estimates from Bloomberg, HTC could post yet another drop to NT$5.2 billion in the fourth quarter on revenue of NT$76.5 billion.
