It has been a roller-coaster ride for OPPO in the European market. It was reported in May that OPPO and its sister firm OnePlus could be leaving France, and the time seems to have come as OPPO has exited France. The reason quoted for this is that the country's leading OPPO distributor, Yang Technology, is ceasing sales in the region.
This is interesting because the Chinese OEM has recently won the patent litigation against Nokia, which was going on for just over two years. Chances are, OPPO doesn't want to take any chances and is pulling out of the French market preemptively. However, the company says it will continue offering after-sales services to existing OPPO customers.
Recently, OPPO closed its German website, and with this France exit, it might be slowly moving out of the European market. Moreover, the company has said that it won't be back until it finds a new distributor in the country. So, if you are in France and want to purchase an OPPO phone, you must take the reseller route to pick up OPPO phones.
OPPO could be exiting France because, although it won the patent litigation against Nokia, it doesn't want to deal with any other sort of judicial trial in the region. As per Frandroid, OPPO has reassured that Customer service is taken over by Oppo so all users can continue to use Oppo products, access after-sales services, receive future operating system updates, etc.
