Gizcoupon reported on May 14th that OPPO announced the termination of its ZEKU business, and multiple sources confirmed that OPPO had abandoned its self-developed chip. Currently, OPPO has released two MariSilicon chip products – MariSilicon X/Y.
Gizcoupon’s investigation found that OPPO official website has taken down the relevant introduction pages for MariSilicon X/Y, with a 404 error message displayed(the page does not exist) when attempting to access them.
In response to inquiries from a journalist from BeiKe Finance, OPPO stated that this was a difficult decision. Our company will handle related matters properly while continuing to create value through quality products.
