  • After OnePlus and OPPO stopped selling their smartphones and other products in Germany, vivo has also stopped sales in the German market.
  • vivo’s German website does not list any products for sale. The company continues to offer customer service for products already sold.
  • This online store closure is likely due to a patent dispute that was ruled in favor of Nokia, the Finnish equipment supplier.

Last year, OPPO and OnePlus were banned from selling their phones in Germany, thanks to a patent dispute ruled against them. Now vivo is following suit, as it has removed its store page in Germany, presenting no way for consumers to purchase vivo smartphones in the country for the foreseeable future.

As reported by WinFuture, vivo has stopped selling smartphones and other products in Germany. Visiting vivo’s German website confirms the same to be true.
