The lawsuit filed by the Finnish Nokia sought to claim the rights of various patents and intellectual property that OPPO and its equipment would be infringing. A Munich court would then back up the plaintiff, leading to OPPO and OnePlus devices being quickly withdrawn from the German market.

However, the Chinese manufacturer has already reacted, despite the fact that it has still obeyed the court order and has withdrawn all its mobile phones and devices from the market in question. It should be noted that both the OnePlus and OPPO online stores have withdrawn their previously available smartphones in Germany.

The expulsion of OPPO and OnePlus by Germany was the inevitable result after the defendant (OPPO) refused to pay Nokia’s patent fees. In short, the infringement of a 5G patent in Germany led to the withdrawal of this manufacturer’s smartphones from German stores.

We have a history of establishing license agreements with many leading companies and are committed to promoting a healthy ecosystem of IP. 4G Contract between OPPO and Nokia, Nokia immediately went to court to ask for an excessively high renewal fee.”
