Chinese electronics giant Oppo has confirmed that it is working on its in-house chipsets. These chipsets will likely power the upcoming Oppo branded smartphones. If it manages to create efficient and powerful chips then it will be in line with Apple, Samsung, and Huawei. It is worth noting that another Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has also tried to create its in-house chipsets. However, the company did not move beyond its lone Surge S1. This is not the first time that we have heard something about Oppo chips. As previously reported, the company was reportedly working on its chipset by the name Oppo M1. Though, the M1 ended up being a co-processor to handle power consumption on its smartphones. Also Read - Oppo Reno 3 Pro full design revealed in TVC; 44MP dual punch-hole selfie camera and more
