It’s possible that OPPO may use Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon processor in its next foldable smartphones. Last year in December, the Chinese Android OEM unveiled the Find N, the world’s first foldable smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888. OPPO’s next devices may have an exciting new update similar to Samsung’s current foldables, according to recent speculations.
Allegedly leaked information suggesting that the business is planning to release not one but two foldable smartphones in the near future. The first gadget has the ability to fold into a clamshell form factor, while the second is more in line with a tablet form factor. The sources also suggest that the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 would power both of these upcoming foldable phones, putting them a notch and a half above OPPO’s first foldable, the Find N.
If the reports about OPPO’s use of the Snapdragon 855 pan out, the company will be able to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4, two of the most innovative smartphones of the year. The tablet-like foldable is said to be dubbed the OPPO “Find N Fold,” while the clamshell device is said to be called the “Find N Flip.” Both would compete with Samsung’s most recent offerings. A registration with the Intellectual Property Office of the European Union for both phones was also mentioned.
The release of a clamshell device with the same processor as the newly released Motorola Razr 2022 would be timely.
Pricebaba predicts that OPPO’s next foldable phones would debut in the coming months, which would give customers something to anticipate for the holidays and provide much-needed competition for Samsung.
In the meanwhile, the recent sales prohibition of OPPO in Germany is something to think about. A patent disagreement with Nokia led to the ban on OPPO and OnePlus smartphones.
Because the sales prohibition might expand to a number of other European nations, this is a very unfortunate reality for OPPO and OnePlus. However, representatives from both organisations have stressed that they are committed to finding a solution. This patent problem with employing Nokia’s 5G technology would ideally need to be addressed before OPPO’s portfolio can compete with some of the top foldable phones on the market.
