In 2023, when Oppo ceased its activities in France, there was incomprehension. Indeed, it is a brand whose high-end devices are very popular. This had a conflict with Nokia, because of patents. But Oppo was not found guilty in France, at first instance.

But, in any case, Oppo is already back on the European continent. He took advantage of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to announce this comeback. “As part of its long-term commitment to the European market, OPPO announced that users in the markets where OPPO has a presence will soon benefit from OPPO's innovative products”, we can also read in a post from the company.

The announcement of the return to Europe was already anticipated, after this agreement.

This week, Oppo also announced a partnership with operator Telefónica, which will support its growth, particularly in Europe.
