Top HTC designer tenders resignation

Taipei, March 27 (CNA) HTC Corp. (???) on Friday confirmed that Jonah Becker, the company's head of industrial design, has resigned. HTC said Becker will be replaced by Daniel Hundt, a designer based in the company's San Francisco design office. Hundt's responsibilities will be focused on developing smartphones, the company said. Following Becker's departure, Claude Zellweger will be the only founding member of One & Co. to remain with HTC after the design firm was acquired by HTC more than six years ago. One & Co. co-founder Scott Croyle, a designer widely recognized as the mastermind behind HTC's One flagship series, parted ways with the Taiwanese company in 2014. HTC said Zellweger will oversee the company's connected products including the Re camera, Grip fitness wearable device, and the forthcoming Vive virtual reality headset. Meanwhile, technology and gadget websites have generally praised HTC's recently unveiled One M9 smartphone, the third iteration of the company's metal-clad One M7 that garnered rave reviews when it was launched in 2013. But many of the reviews have expressed misgivings over the performance of its 20MP main camera.
