- A new report claims Xiaomi and OPPO are working on their own custom 5G smartphone chipsets.
- The chipsets will reportedly be launched by the end of this year or early next year.
- Fabless chipmaker Unisoc is also said to be developing an in-house 5G chipset.
Last week, a report claimed that the upcoming Pixel 6 will be powered by Google's own custom SoC, which it is apparently developing in partnership with Samsung. If a new report from DigiTimes is to be believed, Google isn't the only brand that could ditch Qualcomm for its own mobile chipset this year.
Xiaomi and OPPO are said to be developing their own sub-6GHz 5G chipsets, which could be introduced between late 2021 and early 2022.
