OPPO and OnePlus have been reportedly preparing to exit most, if not all, European markets, including the UK.
The two BBK Electronics-owned companies are struggling in Europe due to a patent dispute lost to Nokia and they are also operating at a loss.
According to the Chinese publication 36Kr, OPPO is getting ready to pull the plug in Germany and the UK.
Max Jambor, a prolific leaker, reports that OnePlus is also leaving European markets, particularly in Germany, the UK, France, and the Netherlands.
OnePlus and Oppo lost a patent dispute with Nokia in Germany. The case stopped the companies from launching their products in the country.
OPPO has its European headquarters in Germany. So this may have been one of the factors that ultimately tipped the scales in favour of leaving.
