Oppo is working on its own chipset just like Samsung, Apple, and Google for its flagship smartphones. At moment Samsung is the benchmark in the Android world as every OEM is competing with Samsung. The South Korean smartphone maker is the biggest Android OEM and every smartphone maker wants to take that top spot.
Two years back, Chinese OEM Huawei almost oust Samsung from its top-ranked Smartphone vendor position. However, due to US restrictions, Huawei almost vanished from major international markets.
Now, BBK owned Oppo is trying to compete with both Samsung and Apple by developing its own in-house chipsets for its smartphones.
The news comes from Nikkei Asia that Oppo is developing its own chip for its upcoming flagship smartphones. There are chances that its upcoming flagships in 2023 or 2024 might use their own in-house custom silicon. It all depends on how they will manage to complete the manufacturing process of their own silicons.
According to recent reports, Oppo is the fourth-largest smartphone vendor globally in terms of unit shipment. It means that they have much more resources to develop their own silicon.
The publication also points out that the Chinese OEM will eventually use TSMC 3nm process technology. If it uses that then it will become the third silicon manufacturer after Apple and Intel.
Oppo has been working on its chip manufacturing process for quite some time. To move further they have recently hired some engineers and experts from Huawei, MediaTek, and Qualcomm. Till now all of Oppo’s smartphones come with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset but in the near future, this might change.
Recently Google launched Pixel 6 and 6 Pro with its own in-house chipset. Along with Google, Samsung, Apple, and Huawei are the older players that are developing their own chipset for their smartphones. Oppo will be joining them soon if everything goes smoothly according to their plan.
Also, Oppo shares its manufacturing process with its sister brands i.e Vivo, iQOO, OnePlus, and Realme. So there are chances that these brands will also use Oppo’s in-house chipset in near future.
