Following reports that HTC may be eschewing the Beats Audio integration to create lower cost smartphones, the company has sent us a message denying that. According to an HTC spokesperson, the company will still continue to integrate Beats Audio into future smartphones:
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.
In recent past, though the Beats Audio profiles are present in current smartphones, HTC had stopped bundling Beats earphones inside its retail smartphone packaging in an effort to lower cost.
