New product discontinuation? Gree’s mobile phone team reportedly disbanded The official website is currently inaccessible

Gree disbanded their mobile phone team and their website is inaccessible

【PhoneAuto News】Perhaps due to poor performance in the mobile phone market, Gree no longer has the intention of making mobile phones.

On May 19th, according to reports, Gree Electric has disbanded its core mobile phone team, and the Gree mobile phone official website (phone.gree.com) is currently unavailable. Gree has not responded to the news yet.

A knowledgeable employee who has already left the company stated that the Gree mobile phone business was initially established in Zhuhai, and the core team was moved to Shenzhen around 2019. The Shenzhen team includes development, testing, and administrative personnel departments, with nearly 100 people at its peak. However, since last year, the Shenzhen team has gradually disbanded, and there were still more than 40 people left by mid-2022. Afterward, “the Shenzhen team disbanded completely, and there should be no more mobile phones.”

However, Dong Mingzhu had previously stated that mobile phones will become an indispensable part of future intelligent+ and are an extension of technology and a necessary part of enterprise development. In September 2020, because there were no new phones for a long time after the release of Gree mobile phone 3, the outside world believed that Gree mobile phones had failed. But Dong Mingzhu argued that Gree mobile phones were not a failure. She said that what others think is not important, but what matters is whether they are doing it right or not. In June last year, Dong Mingzhu even said that Gree mobile phones are not worse than Apple.

But this year, Gree mobile phones have brought bad news: the mobile phone team may have been disbanded, and product development will have no follow-up.

In fact, this may also be related to poor performance in the mobile phone market, and Gree’s senior management may have noticed this. According to Counterpoint’s report, global smartphone shipments in the first quarter of this year were 280.2 million units, a year-on-year and month-on-month decrease of 14% and 7%, respectively. The smartphone market is becoming smaller and smaller, and Gree’s opponents are undoubtedly strong.
