Last year, OPPO deposited with the Delhi High Court with 23 per cent of the amount generated from its sales in India for infringing upon Nokia's patent.

As per the sources, the Chinese company deposited 23 per cent to Nokia from the sale of around 77 million devices in India since 2019, before the court-set deadline of August 25. However, the exact amount deposited by OPPO could not be ascertained.

The Supreme Court had dismissed OPPO’s plea against a Delhi HC order which directed the company to deposit 23 per cent of the amount generated from its sales in the country for infringing upon Nokia's patent.

Courts in India, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, and Brazil have all given their verdicts in Nokia’s favour. OPPO secured a licence from Nokia in 2018 for using some of the Finnish telecom gear company’s technology for three years.
