The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor was announced in May and it offers a 10 percent faster CPU and GPU performance compared to the non-plus version. Many smartphone OEMs including iQOO, OnePlus, Motorola are gearing up to launch devices with the latest chipset. Now OPPO is also reportedly joining the bandwagon. Since the Find X5 Pro already comes with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, we expect it to come with an upgraded Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. 

Apart from the aforementioned information, the tipster also adds that a clamshell folding phone codenamed Dragonfly may debut this year. Additionally, the successor to the OPPO Find N is also said to be in the works. It is expected to be the Find N2 codenamed ‘White Swan’. 

DCS also claims that ColorOS 13, OPPO Watch 3, and OPPO Band 2 fitness tracker are also expected to launch later this year.
