HTC loses second lead designer in less than a year.

His predecessor Scott Croyle left only 11 months ago, making this post seem like a hot potato at HTC. HTC didn’t cite a reason for Becker’s departure, which marks just the latest high-profile shakeup at the Taiwanese company as it continues to lose market share to smartphone rivals like Apple, Samsung and China’s Xiaomi. Last week, HTC elevated co-founder Cher Wang to CEO, with former CEO Peter Chou moved to a position overseeing “product innovation,” as a company release put it. Breaking the news on Twitter, Becker states that it has been an, “amazing seventeen year journey with One & Co and HTC, but it’s time for a new adventure.” As reported by Engadget, the move may be due to an “ever increasing power struggle” between HTC’s design team and the company’s sales team.

It is claimed that the company’s move from an UltraPixel rear-facing camera to a more standard 20MP camera is an example of this “power struggle.” There is no doubt that the One M7 and One M8 pushed the design standard set on smartphones. Becker was the person in charge of overseeing the development of a plethora of products, including the company’s recently released flagship, the HTC One M9 smartphone. Becker and HTC have both announced that they were looking forwards to a new adventure, but the reason why Becker chose to leave HTC is unknown and it is probably going to remain that way.
