Oppo is one of the world’s leading smartphone maker brands offering mobile phones in all price ranges. We are also an industry-leading innovator, working on new technologies that push the boundaries. It’s already forayed into the foldable segment, and new leaks have confirmed earlier claims that it’s developing the chipset in-house.
According to usually reliable tipsters ice universe (@universeice), Oppo is said to be working to release its first homegrown smartphone chipset in 2024. The company has been working on it for quite some time, and we first heard whispers about a year ago. Those rumors suggested a 2023 release schedule, but it looks like he’ll have to wait another year.
OPPO independently developed the processor that will be used in OPPO smartphones in 2024.

Oppo’s first custom chips are expected to be based on TSMC’s 3-nanometer manufacturing process. Exact details of technical specifications and features are currently unknown. The chipset will definitely make its debut in Oppo smartphones, but we don’t know at this time if it will also be featured in Realme, Vivo and OnePlus smartphones.
Oppo isn’t the first Android OEM to consider developing its own chipset. Google already has his Pixel smartphone with a custom-made Tensor chipset. Samsung has been using his Exynos chipset for a long time. Huawei and Honor relied on Kirin processors until a US trade embargo halted production.
