Know the whole matter
Finnish smartphone company Nokia filed a lawsuit against Oppo in the year 2021, in which Nokia accused Oppo of infringing the patent. Nokia used to license other companies to use this patent. However, the validity of this license was not long and all companies have to renew their license from time to time to use this patent. In 2018, Nokia issued a similar license for Oppo. The validity of this license given by Nokia was valid only till 2021 and Oppo needed to renew this license again in 2021. But, Oppo did not consider it necessary to renew this license and kept using Nokia's patent without renewing the license. After this, Nokia presented this matter in front of the court.

If reports are to be believed, Oppo was accused of using Nokia's Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) and non-SEPs like UI/UX without a license. This case is from Germany. Germany's Mannheim Regional Court gave its verdict in favor of Nokia in the case of patent infringement and also ordered the ban of Oppo and OnePlus in Germany.
