The company has reportedly asked the US government for an assurance before it sells a Galaxy S2 on its own.

HTC has long been the target of criticism, with complaints at the head of mobile development for the US tech giant following its controversial decision to skip the HTC Vive launch event in California in March.

In September, HTC said its Galaxy S4 did not meet its requirements to deliver a smartphone of “high standards” and had “a limited user base”.

In March, the UK’s top tech firm, IHS Insight, noted the absence of an expected phone from its own flagship smartphones.

Samsung Electronics, also known as Samsung, already had its own Galaxy A3 and Xperia Z3 smartphones for sale to some of its customers.
