On May 12, OPPO announced that it would completely discontinue its chip design company ZEKU and abandon its own research.
OPPO's official reason for this is:"Due to the uncertainties in the global economy and mobile phone market, the company needs to make strategic adjustments to meet the challenges of long-term development."
However, many people do not buy it, and there is a lot of speculation, even conspiracy theories, involving US sanctions, Arm authorization policy and so on.
On the same day, Duan Yongping, as the founder of the Better Life brand, also made a brief comment:"Correct your mistakes as soon as possible, and as little as possible."
On May 16, another netizen asked Duan Yongping how to view OPPO's closure of Zheku business.
Duan's comments were in depth, but appeared to be his last.
Duan Yongping first stressed that he has been retired for more than 20 years and does not know how OPPO's current business is run. In fact, he got the news about Kutzer's suspension only 10 minutes before he read it online.
Duan reviewed the history of BBG's business changes, pointing out that many businesses have been shut down in a similar way over the years, starting with Tamagotchi and dance MATS, and later with small household appliances, home stereo, color TV, Blu-ray DVD, small genius mobile phone and so on.
He also lamented that the television business had been shut down twice, once recently, and that, speaking of little geniuses, everyone knew about its near-monopoly on children's watches, but few knew it had tried to make mobile phones.
Among all the businesses that stopped voluntarily, the only one that made Duan Yongping feel the crisis of survival was the first batch of VCDS sold. Because Sanyo movement went wrong, he recalled all the 200,000 machines sold. That was really uncomfortable, but he decided to do it.
Duan Yongping said:"This is not the first business we've shut down, and it won't be the last. The best way to stop something that doesn't work in the long run is to stop it now! The sooner the mistake is corrected, the better. Whatever the cost is is the smallest price to pay!"
Perhaps tired of being asked the same question, Duan finally delivered the harsh words:"If anyone ever asks why we shut down these services, I'll just block them."
