The newest rumors imply that Oppo will eventually release its own smartphone chipset in 2024. The business has long been speculated to be working on its own smartphone chipset.
Ice Universe reports that the Chinese phone manufacturer has assembled a brand-new team for the undertaking made up of thousands of personnel. Although it is unclear whether other BBK Electronics-owned companies, including as OnePlus, Realme, and Vivo, will make use of the speculated chipset, it will represent a significant change in Oppo’s business practises.
According to the latest report, Oppo aims to take greater control of its smartphone industry by reducing its reliance on outside suppliers for smartphone parts. There were rumours that the company might mass-produce chipsets for Oppo smartphones using TSMC’s 3nm technology in late 2021. Rumors at the time said Oppo intended to release its own CPU in 2023 or 2024.
It is yet unknown if Oppo will introduce its own chipset first to its entry-level or mid-range phones, or whether it would do it gradually. In the Android market, Qualcomm presently leads in terms of processor performance and efficiency for smartphones. But MediaTek is gaining ground, and its Dimensity 9000 series processors have proven to be very effective.
The purported attempts made by Oppo are not altogether unusual. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 lineup, which employ Google’s Tensor processor, are just two examples of the greatest Android phones available today that are driven by specialised CPUs. Except for those marketed in the United States, certain regions of the world now get Samsung’s Galaxy flagship handsets with Exynos chipsets; however, this may soon change.
