Oppo is not importing new models to France and has stopped advertising activity
Earlier this year, reports appeared on the Web that Oppo could leave the European market, and at the same time take OnePlus with it. Then the second directly denied the rumors, and the first did it not very confidently. However, new data indicate that the rumors could still be true.
The Frandroid resource spoke with several Oppo employees in France. According to them, there are a number of factors hinting at the imminent departure of the company, at least from France. First, Oppo’s contract with Atmospheres, the contractor responsible for selling the company’s smartphones in that country, expires on June 30th. Secondly, Oppo employees were informed that the new Find X and Reno smartphones will not appear in France, and the foldable Find N2 Flip was supposed to appear in retail stores, but in the end it is only available online.
Oppo will leave the European market?
Thirdly, the staff of Oppo stores allegedly received instructions to dismantle advertising stands, and the company stopped advertising activities some time ago.
We realized that they were leaving because we were no longer taught new products. We saw the Find X release in China, but it never made it to France. The Reno 8 series has been introduced but will also not be available in France. When the Find N2 Flip was launched, we were initially informed of its availability in physical stores, but it ended up being only sold on the website.
Recall that earlier Oppo lost a patent dispute to Nokia, because of which it was forced to leave the German market.
