News out of Taiwan these days is that HTC’s president for the Smartphone and Connected Devices Company is resigning, efficiently promptly. Chialin Chang, who’d formerly served as HTC’s CFO and, among 2013 and 2017, its head of global sales, was just one of the very last remaining superior-amount executives not to have departed the corporation. But the placement he was occupying commenced to seem redundant immediately after HTC marketed off most of its smartphone design and engineering team to Google for $one.one billion.
HTC hasn’t however give up the smartphone business solely, as the corporation has previously promised a dual-digicam flagship telephone for 2018, which we can surmise is the U12 that was teased a few of weeks in the past. Resources acquainted with HTC’s roadmap have advised The Verge that the upcoming significant telephone start from the corporation will not be at Mobile Environment Congress in Barcelona this thirty day period, but will occur shortly immediately after. What, if nearly anything, we can count on from HTC’s smartphone division immediately after that stage is mysterious.
Even though short, HTC’s disclosure these days suggests that Chialin Chang has resigned thanks to his particular occupation system — presumably meaning he no more time desires to be the captain of a vanishing ship — and, ominously, the portion for his replacement is remaining unfilled.
