The head of Samsung's mobile design team, Chang Dong-hoon, has been reassigned by the electronics giant. According to Reuters, Chang had offered to resign from the company, but was instead moved to a different position within Samsung. The move is being made due to weak consumer interest in the Galaxy S5 smartphone, says Reuters, which pointed out criticisms of the flagship's cheap plastic design. "The realignment will enable Chang to focus more on his role as head of the Design Strategy Team, the company's corporate design center which is responsible for long-term design strategy across all of Samsung's businesses," said Samsung in a statement. Chang will be replaced by Lee Min-hyouk, vice president for mobile design. The change is effective immediately.
