Based on about a dozen rumors, the HTC U12+ will be an impressive device. But by now, you’re probably sick of the doom and gloom stories that get published about HTC every month when the company releases its financial updates. As an HTC loyalist, it’s disappointing and frustrating. The company is expected to post a profit for the first quarter of 2018, but that’s only because Google purchased over half of HTC’s R&D team for $1.1 billion. But the last time HTC actually reported positive quarterly results was for Q1 of 2015.
