The competition between smartphone brands has been going on for years. Each company is trying its best to dominate the market. There are different factors that help the brand to propel themselves to the next level. Some flagship has the best camera, some have the best display, some come with greater battery power. Talking about these distinctive specifications of a smartphone, one of the main components is System on Chip (SoC) used in a device. As of now the smartphone companies like Apple, Samsung and Huawei are the only companies that have successfully built in-house SoC chips. But now, Oppo has announced that it is planning to develop its in-house SoC technology.

“As Oppo continues its global push, the company will invest in areas like 5G for sustainable development, together with industrial chain partners,” said the Oppo officials. 5G technology is evolving rapidly. The top brands are aiming their flagships for 5G. There’s a huge advantage if the smartphone companies are building in-house chips as proprietary chipsets promise significant advantages by enhancing the handset capabilities. The smartphones will no longer have to depend on other SoC as well.

It will be exciting to see what Oppo will bring to the table. As one of the biggest smartphone companies, Oppo’s plan for in-house SoC development will definitely make an impact on the current market.
