The Keys o the Possible Sale of HTC to Google
Immersed in a vicious circle, the company took a step forward betting along with Valve virtual reality, one of the trends of the years to come. Without this having worked as expected, HTC has continued to make some of the best smartphones, such as HTC U11 or Google Pixel, but has also been in vain.
Such a negative context has caused HTC to analyze different options, such as the possibility of dividing the company into two parts, one dedicated to virtual reality and the second the classic, dedicated to smartphones.
