TCL Chairman Li Dongsheng has a post on his Weibo account in which he hints a possible tie-up between his company and HTC. In the post, Dongsheng expresses his admiration for Cher Wang, founder and chairman of HTC and recommends that both companies could pose a serious threat to the likes of Apple and Samsung.


This isn't the first time TCL's Chairman hints at operations behind the scenes in this Weibo account. Previously, he noted made a small indication of TCL's partnership with Baidu on the TV front.

Back in 2004, TCL invested €55 million in Alcatel's phonemaking business in return of 55% shareholding and a year later bought the remaining 45% for $8.1 million. Now, 9 years later, Alcatel is doing nicely and showcased some remarkable smartphones at IFA 2014.

HTC's latest quarter results show the company only managed to return a profit thanks to tightening its belt and cutting costs. Similarly to what it did with Alcatel, TCL could invest a considerable amount of money in HTC resulting in the phonemaker having more room to breathe and produce remarkable products.
