If this report turns out to be true, HTC will definitely earn some brownie points from consumers and in turn evoke more loyalty among fans, considering that fact the company is in dire need to re-invigorate its fading smartphone sales.

[Note: HTC builds Google's Pixel phones and this apparently helped its consolidated revenue for September to go up by 33 percent compared to last year and 42 percent up from August, but its own branded handsets are having hard time to find traction among public]
