HTC has re-entered the India market after a gap of one year. But before you get too excited, the troubled Taiwanese smartphone maker is making a comeback through China-based InOne Technology. Basically, InOne Technology is a brand licensee for HTC in India. It’s China’s InOne Technology that’s reviving the HTC brand in India.

It’s good to see that the HTC name will be once again used on smartphone sold in the India market. At one point in time, HTC used to compete with the likes of Apple and Samsung in the high-end smartphone market.
