OnePlus Could Be Buying HTC’s Shanghai Factory

by Martin 3

HTC has been in deep trouble for quite a while now with the company laying off a large portion of its work force as well as shutting down its factory in Shanghai. And it looks like OnePlus is hoping to snatch up HTC’s now defunct Shangai factory according to posts by OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu on his Weibo account.

Liu Zuohu made a post during yesterday’s Victory Day holiday in China saying that he was on a business trip to Taipei. The post contained photos that show him standing in front of HTC’s headquarters in Taiwan as well as wide-angle picture of the building.

oneplus-htc-factory-01We’re not sure why OnePlus would want to purchase HTC’s Shanghai factory but they could just be trying to bolster their production capabilities to coincide with the wider launch of their latest OnePlus 2 flagship.

OnePlus isn’t the first company to attempt to purchase HTC’s Shanghai factory with companies like Xiaomi and Qihoo 360 bringing up offers that ultimately ended up being rejected. HTC could be waiting for a decent enough offer that could help them get the company back on track.

Whether OnePlus is successful at purchasing the factory or gets rejected like the companies who have tried before it is yet to be seen but we do know that if HTC doesn’t find a way to gain some momentum even selling off their factory might not be enough to save them.

    HTX actually got good phones but too bad their price is expensive.

    Their price just doesn’t make sense, might as well add a bit more and get samsung.

    For cheap and good phones i think buyer will run to those reputable affordable china Xiaomi, OnePLus, Meizu, etc. I think good price range is between $100 – $250.

    Even those big brand oppo, gionee, huawei ,etc also keep trying to sell their so called “premium models” with premium expensive prices, not sure how they can survive with those high prices and their brands.

    For those rich peoples who can afford, what they want most are those RICH PREMIUM FEELINGS so normally they will buy apple or samsung products.

    They want the look from other jealous people’s eyes that might say “ah so you are using iPhone 6s, so darn good”, “ah you are using samsung edge , so darn blablablabla,,,,,” because to be honest, not many of us capable to buy those products that average selling at USD$700 and more (with that kind of money i can buy other china brand for 3-4 units)

    Problem is buying those so called “expensive premium china brand WILL NOT have those premium feeling, Their china brands will not have that premium feeling level so i think that price is the main concern for their potential buyers (i might be wrong, this is my personal opinion as average buyers that don’t have so much money to spend on gadgets)

    Sorry i am not trying to be an asshole or being bias but i think our human society behavior is still like that either you like it or not. And because of this behavior, Apple and Samsung still earning good profit as they jack off their profit margin so high and their fanboys still buying their products.
