The media reported that Finnish telecommunications company Nokia has filed numerous patent infringement complaints against smartphone brand OPPO regarding standard-essential patent (SEP) and non-SEP patents.

According to GSMArena, these patents are about connectivity, interface, and security features, and the complaints are filed in European and Asian markets.

Smartphone brands OPPO and Nokia had signed a multi-year licensing agreement back in 2018, and it appears that the contract is over, the report said.

The Finnish telecommunications company put out an official statement that OPPO had rejected the offer of renewing the contract so it had to take legal action since Oppo continues to use those patents.

Media reports said that OPPO found Nokia’s action “shocking” and accused it of dishonoring the patent licensing under fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms.

OPPO respects and protects its own and third-party intellectual property rights, and has been committed to benign patent licensing cooperation in the industry. OPPO opposes unreasonable consultations such as using litigation as a tool, – the smartphone company

The spokesperson for Nokia “believes that there is still a more constructive way to deal with the situation”.

Nokia has quite a lot of patents up its sleeve and has signed royalty-bearing agreements with Samsung, Apple, LG, Lenovo, and even Blackberry, the report said.

Both the companies have not revealed how closely they would integrate. A new leaked memo has disclosed that OnePlus will become OPPO’s sub-brand.
