Oppo is known for making mobile phones that are not just gorgeous but also affordable for most of the users. And now we have rumors that they are just getting faster and better in terms of processing power as well. The rumors says that Oppo's upcoming device could feature a next-generation processor. The leaker with a username DigitalChatStation on Chinese social-network website Weibo says that Oppo is working to integrate a new chipset that may end up being called the Snapdragon 870.
Snapdragon 870 hasn't been announced yet and we are expecting it to be revealed by the Qualcomm event in December - but according to existing reports, we can hope for lighting-fast processing speeds to smartphones. If Oppo does have plans to feature its next smartphone with Snapdragon 870 in a phone, it will be likely teh Oppo Reno 5 or Oppo Find X3 that is expected somewhere around Feb or March next year. The Oppo Reno 5 is the fifth-generation of its mid-range smartphone series. Oppo might want to use the latest processor at its most premium model, but it remains to be seen how ‘lite' the Snapdragon 870 is, and Oppo might decide it's a better fit for its top phones than the 875.
If the Oppo Find X3 does end up having this Snapdragon 870 processor, it will be another great phone by the companies to put high-speed processing chips in the mid-range smartphones. But do users actually need such a fast processor for an additional cost? Mid-range smartphones are a preferred choice of users who might not need maximum processing power. We have to find what's in store for us, when the phone actually launch or we get more confirmed leaks. So, would you pay extra for having a processor that is super fast or you would prefer to stick to more budget-friendly smartphone variants? Do let us know in the comment section below.
