HTC President Chailin Chang resigns

Chialin Chang

According to local press, Chialin Chang intends to set up his own AI company, which sounds like it has nothing to do with HTC's increasing irrelevance in the mobile tech world.

The president of HTC's smartphone and connected devices business, Chialin Chang, resigned from the company on Wednesday, February 14, an investor announcement said. HTC saw many executives depart and Chang was among the few veterans left.

Winter Olympics 2018: Chris Mazdzer wins historic silver in men's singles luge
The sport of luge is a small, tight-knit world, and Mazdzer was keen to credit his peers for helping him during the trial runs. The small but lively crowd turned what should have been a predictable event into an everyone-roots-for-everyone affair.

HTC U12 could be the successor to last year's HTC U11 and will boast dual camera setup on the back. Currently, Chang's position as head of Smartphones remains unfilled, another indicator that perhaps HTC is moving on from that side of the business. As part of a $1.1 billion deal with Google, HTC sent some of its top smartphone engineers to Mountain View, including ones who worked on Google's Pixel devices. His replacement has not yet been announced and Chairwoman and CEO Cher Wang will likely take over his duties until the company can find someone to fill his position. "We thank him for his dedication to the Company for the last six years and wish him well in his future endeavours".

Although the company is facing troubles for quite a while, yet it seems like the company will be launching its promised flagship of 2018, apparently HTC U12, in coming months. HTC's smartphone division has been losing money for ten consecutive quarters, with one of its most recent losses being $103 million in Q3 of previous year.
