Yesterday, rumors suggested that HTC, in an effort to reduce costs would be eliminating Beats Audio from their future handsets. This news appeared even more official, with HTC selling it’s controllling share of Beats Audio only a month prior. It started to appear as though this once fruitful relationship had become no longer worth it to the Taiwanese company.
Well HTC has decided to officially put these rumors to rest courtesy of a statement from HTC’s Global Online Communications Manager to Android Central:
“HTC remains strongly committed to Beats Audio and including their innovation in our devices. Any rumor of HTC no longer integrating Beats Audio into our devices is categorically false.”
So now, straight from HTC themselves, we receive a confirmation that for now Beats Audio will remain bundled with HTC devices.
