Oppo could call dibs on one of the next generation chipsets that Qualcomm will launch in December. Qualcomm will hold an event in December where it will announce the launch of the Snapdragon 875 chipset. But a less powerful and smaller Snapdragon 870 chipset is said to go along with it. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC may find use in an Oppo phone first if a new rumor is anything to build upon.
According to the credible tipster passing by Digital Chat Station, Oppo is working on a device that will be powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 870 processor. This chipset is said to offer clock speed performance up to 3.2 GHz, which seems a bit more than what the Snapdragon 865 offers. But considering this will be a vanilla chipset, it will certainly be less powerful than the Snapdragon 875 processor. this little information, not much is known about the Snapdragon 870 processor.
Oppo entered the flagship club with its Find X series two years ago, packing the best possible hardware at a price that normally outperforms Samsung and other rivals. Now that rumors have surfaced about Oppo working on a Snapdragon 870-powered phone, it will be interesting to see what phone that might be. It could be Find X3 while Find X3 Pro could contain Snapdragon 875 processor. It could also be one of the Ace series phones available in China. But I doubt a Reno series phone will understand this.
In addition to Oppo, there may also be other manufacturers that may be in line to use the Snapdragon 870 processor. Xiaomi, Realme and even OnePlus may bring their own smartphones running on this processor, but that’s just a prerequisite. Nothing is still set in stone. Oppo has yet to confirm whether it is partnering with Qualcomm for the exclusive acquisition of the Snapdragon 870 processor.
