Any hope of slowing down Samsung’s quest to completely dominate the Android market may rest with the HTC One. Barron’s points us to a new note from Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt, who says that while Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has posted strong early sales, it has been “losing steam” in recent weeks thanks to a combination of “the HTC One and reversion from the pre-launch hype for the S4.” McCourt’s research backs up other promising reports we’ve seen about early HTC One sales this month, although it’s not clear if having a hit smartphone will be enough to rescue HTC from its current financial troubles. McCourt also notes that Apple has continued to thrive while Samsung’s momentum has slowed, and that neither LG nor Motorola have been able to take advantage of Samsung’s lower-than-expected sales.
