Oppo has been rumored to be developing its own smartphone chipset for quite some time now, and the latest whispers suggest that the company will finally launch the in-house processor in 2024.

According to Ice Universe (opens in new tab), the Chinese phone maker has formed a new team consisting of thousands of employees for the project. It is not clear whether other BBK Electronics-owned brands, including OnePlus, Realme, and Vivo would use the rumored chipset, but it will mark a pivotal shift in Oppo's operations.

The new rumor suggests Oppo wants to gain more control over its smartphone business by minimizing its dependence on third-party vendors for smartphone components. In late 2021, there were speculations that the firm would use TSMC's 3nm process to mass-produce chipsets for Oppo smartphones. According to rumors at the time, Oppo planned to introduce its own processor sometime in 2023 or 2024.

It seems that cutting reliance on major chip makers like Qualcomm is slowly becoming a goal for Android OEMs. Google has long done this, as has Samsung with its Exynos line, though the South Korean tech giant may be considering forming a new chipset division independent of Samsung LSI (which manufactures the Exynos chipsets). Huawei used to build its own Kirin processor, though it went out of business due to U.S. government bans.
