News out of Taiwan as of late is that HTC’s president for the Smartphone and Connected Devices Business is resigning, successfully instantly. Chialin Chang, who’d prior to now served as HTC’s CFO and, between 2013 and 2017, its head of worldwide gross sales, was once some of the last ultimate high-level executives to not have departed the company. But the placement he was once occupying began to appear redundant after HTC offered off maximum of its smartphone design and engineering workforce to Google for $1.1 billion.
HTC hasn’t but hand over the smartphone trade solely, as the company has already promised a dual-camera flagship phone for 2018, which we will be able to surmise is the U12 that was once teased a few weeks in the past. Sources conversant in HTC’s roadmap have informed The Verge that the following primary phone release from the company received’t be at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month, however will come quickly after. What, if the rest, we will be able to be expecting from HTC’s smartphone department after that time is unknown.
Though temporary, HTC’s disclosure as of late signifies that Chialin Chang has resigned because of his non-public profession plan — possibly that means he not needs to be the captain of a vanishing send — and, ominously, the segment for his substitute is left unfilled.
