It isn't offering many details for the time being, but Samsung has confirmed to The New York Times that Kevin Packingham, one of its top mobile execs, has left the company. In a statement, Samsung would only say that "we thank Kevin for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors," offering no indication whether the move was a voluntary one or not. Packingham had served as the chief product officer for Samsung Mobile, and oversaw the launch of a number of devices in Samsung's Galaxy line during his tenure, most recently including the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. That tenure has proven to be a relatively short one, though; Packingham only left Sprint in 2010 to join Samsung.
