HTC's Smartphone Chief Chialin Chang Resigns

The bottom line is, Chang is out and HTC, at least for now, is not replacing him. Chang previously worked at Motorola and Goldman Sachs before joining HTC as CFO in 2012.

The President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business of HTC, Chialin Chang, has resigned.

In a statement, HTC said Chang had chose to leave to take a different career path. As for the reason behind Chang's decision to resign, the release says he is leaving due to "personal career path". HTC saw many executives depart and Chang was among the few veterans left.

HTC's been struggling to find a strong foothold in the smartphone space for quite some time now, and matters aren't going to be helped in this regard following the announcement that HTC's President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, Chialin Chang, has resigned. "We thank him for his dedication to the Company for the last 6 years and wish him well in his future endeavors".

His position seemed useless as HTC sold nearly all of its smartphone design and engineering team to Google.

HTC hasn't officially quit the smartphone business just yet, but with the Google deal and now this, it is seeming increasingly likely that HTC may stop producing its own phones.

HTC, the popular Taiwanese tech giant, has ended the year 2017 by recording the lowest revenue of $2.1 billion in 13 years. Some speculate that the HTC U12 might be the company's last flagship, but nothing is confirmed at this point.
