According to a brief release posted online by HTC, Chang is leaving as its President of Smartphone and Connected Devices Business. HTC's smartphone revenue has declined significantly over the years, and isn't showing any signs of improving.

The news broke in the early morning of February 14, with HTC citing Chang's resignation being due to his own "personal career plan". Chang joined HTC as its Chief Financial Officer in 2012 before becoming the smartphone and connected devices president back in 2016.

Following her win, the Olympic gold medalist's parents embraced her and Jong Jin pointed to himself and stated, " American Dream". Even if it was a gold medal I didn't want to go home knowing that I could have done better, so when I landed I was so excited.

HTC has yet to appoint a replacement for Chang and until it does, it's likely that CEO and Chairwoman Cher Wang will take over most of Chang's duties and responsibilities.

Chang Chia-lin (張嘉臨) resigned on Wednesday as president of Taiwan-based HTC Corp's Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, at a time when the Taiwanese smartphone brand is struggling against stiff global competition. "We thank him for his dedication to the Company for the last 6 years and wish him well in his future endeavors". However, after Google acquired HTC's smartphone design and engineering teams, his position was somewhat redundant. This comes right after Google completed its acquisition of some of HTC's hardware team members for $1.1 billion, and following 10 consecutive quarterly loss reports for the company. It is expected that HTC will launch HTC U12 sometime in 2018. He was the CFO of HTC in the years 2013-2017. It will be a dual-camera flagship phone by HTC.
