- Oppo is reportedly developing custom chipsets for premium phones.
- The first phones with these processors are slated to arrive by 2023 at the earliest.
Custom processors are one of the biggest challenges for smartphone brands, with only Apple, Google, Samsung, and Huawei having flagship-level in-house silicon at this juncture. However, we’ve heard murmurings in the last year or two about Oppo working on custom chipsets of its own.
Now, Nikkei Asia has reported that the company is indeed developing high-end chipsets for its “premium” smartphones. Oppo plans to use these chipsets in phones launching in 2023 or 2024, two sources briefed on the topic told the outlet.
