New Oppo Phone Details: What to Expect
According to tipster Digital Chat Station, Oppo is already working on a new smartphone with the unofficial Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor. We can expect the phone to arrive right after the chip manufacturer officially launches its new “Lite” processor.
Unfortunately, Qualcomm didn’t release many details about its next project. Oppo, on the other hand, prefers to stay silent.
An Oppo Phone with Snapdragon 870 SoC
If the rumors turn out to be accurate, we can paint a picture of the next Oppo smartphone’s performance.
The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC is believed to be an octa-core chip, where one of the core is clocked at 3.2GHz. Such a thing means that it is clocked at a higher frequency than the flagship Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
Qualcomm stated that the upcoming Snapdragon processor’s concept is to bring performance similar to that of the most recent Snapdragon 875 SoC.
Furthermore, the new processor is expected to offer high performance but at an affordable price. And we can say that this syncs perfectly with many Oppo devices in mid-range and premium mid-range phones.
Another Premium Mid-Range Phone
Given the information we got, we can expect a new Oppo smartphone in the premium mid-range segment that’s now dominated by big names, such as the Samsung Galaxy M series and OnePlus Nord.
Oppo should release the first details in the coming months. There’s a chance we might witness a launch event for the new smartphone by the end of the year.
