    OPPO follows a plan to develop its own processors for smartphones

    OPPO creates great smartphones, likes good design, and can create excellent smartphone cameras. Now, the company wants more vertical integration, OPPO follows a plan to develop its own processors.

    The Chinese smartphone company wants to design its own line of processors so it doesn’t have to depend on companies like MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Samsung in the future, at least in the smartphone segment.

    OPPO China President Liu Bo confirmed in an interview that the company is pursuing its plans to manufacture its own processors and that they may be the “crucial driving force” for OPPO’s growth in the future.

    This is not the first time that the company has worked on its own chipset. The company has already designed the M1 chipset, but it is designed for wireless headsets and has Bluetooth 5.0, AAC codec and a low latency mode.

    In February 2020, the company shared an internal note mentioning a project to develop its own processors. Liu Bo also said that the company will start working with major suppliers to design and develop its processors.

    Since U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order to enforce trade sanctions against Huawei last year, Chinese smartphone brands have been cautious with the U.S.

    Companies like OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi try to diversify their suppliers’ portfolio. This could spell disaster for Qualcomm in the long run, if Chinese smartphone OEMs are successful in designing their own SoCs.

    Despite banning the use of the Google Play Store on Huawei devices, the company still managed to sell millions of smartphones due to its cutting-edge hardware, such as Kirin processors and its own 4G and 5G modems. Likewise, OPPO is considering building its internal processors and modems.

    Samsung is another player that makes many smartphone components in-house, including processors, modems, RAM, storage, display panels, camera sensors and batteries.

    Like Huawei, it also sells network equipment to telecommunications companies. Xiaomi also started developing its internal processors, Surge S1 and Surge S2, but then stopped development.

    It is not easy to develop a smartphone processor due to the majority of patents belonging to companies like Apple, Nvidia, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Broadcom. Therefore, few companies have been successful in this market and brands like Broadcom, Intel, Nvidia, and TI (Texas Instruments) have had to leave the market.
