Oppo started working towards the development of its own high-end mobile chipsets for its premium-grade flagship smartphones. The company is looking forward to reducing its reliance on chipmaking companies like Qualcomm and Mediatek.
As of now, Oppo is one of the world’s largest tech giants and the world’s fourth-largest smartphone brand. The company is planning to begin shipping the custom-made mobile chipsets sometime around 2023-24. The company had already confirmed that it was working on its own self-developed processors earlier this year. Sources have revealed to Nikkei Asia (one of the world’s largest financial newspapers) the possible launch timeline of these upcoming chipsets.
Oppo’s entry marks another Chinese brand joining the race of smartphone makers that are trying to make their own SoC (System on chips). Now, tech giants like Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi are developing their own chips for processors. Even Google is now making their own chips with its flagship Pixel 6 series launching with the new Tensor chipsets. By making its own chipset, Oppo would have better control over its own supply chain and might also help the impacts of the ongoing global shortages of semiconductors.
Sources also revealed that the company is working on 3nm production technology that is being offered by TSMC. The company is receiving other major smartphone brands as its new client, with Apple, Intel, AMD, and Nvidia being some of its existing customers.
