HTC today said Chialin Chang, President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, has resigned effective immediately. The only reason given for the departure pertains to Chang's "personal career plan." The company did not name a replacement. Chang joined HTC initially in 2012 as the company's CFO, though he later transitioned to the smartphone business. Google completed its purchase of a large portion of HTC's smartphone design team last month. HTC says it will continue to make smartphones and is widely expected to debut a new flagship device in the next month or two. If or how Chang's departure impacts those plans is unclear.
