OPPO Reno 8 series will now be launching in Europe. However, the only country not getting the devices will be Germany. OPPO and OnePlus devices have been banned in Germany. This is due to a lawsuit filed by Nokia. They claimed that OPPO and OnePlus had violated their 5G patents.
Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro were also rumored to launch in Pakistan later this year. Taxation and high dollar rates have disrupted the Pakistani market. Consequently, OPPO Reno 7 series didn’t even launch here in Pakistan. It remains to be seen whether we will see the Reno 8 series in Pakistan.
