The news broke in the early morning of February 14, with HTC citing Chang's resignation being due to his own "personal career plan". This comes right after Google completed its acquisition of some of HTC's hardware team members for $1.1 billion, and following 10 consecutive quarterly loss reports for the company.More news: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 review
In a statement, HTC said Chang had made a decision to leave to take a different career path. The company is already having a bad time, yet another bad news for it arrives, where HTC's President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, Chialin Chang, has resigned. According to a brief release posted online by HTC, Chang is leaving as its President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business.
HTC may not launch its next flagship at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month, but it should formally unveil it shortly afterward.
HTC's note mentions nothing about a replacement for Chialin either, which also doesn't spell particularly well for the company's future in smartphones. Some speculate that the HTC U12 might be the company's last flagship, but nothing is confirmed at this point.
