Despite the decidedly negative period due to the Coronavirus misfortunes, there is no shortage of small guerrillas between brands, which today see Sharp Corporation and OPPO as protagonists, the latter accused of patent infringement at the Intellectual Property Court in Taiwan. From what emerges from the Sharp company statement, the smartphones of the rival brand OPPO, sold in Taiwan, would violate some patents relating to the communication technologies implemented on board the devices. Let's find out better what it is.
Apparently Sharp claims that his intellectual property is one of the main resources for developing his business, with a portfolio of patents dedicated to the wireless communication standard that includes over 6000 of these, in more than 50 countries. Therefore OPPO was sued on April 1 for infringement of the patent relating to LTE technology.

Everything is still in an embryonic phase, therefore from the few data provided it is difficult to take a position towards one or the other brand, nor are specific data on which smartphones are affected by this cause. Naturally, the competent authorities will take care of shedding light on the issue while we will simply keep you updated on developments, if any, such as an answer by OPPO to Sharp.
It is not the first time that we have witnessed tech-based diatribes by companies, often even too distant from each other for philosophy, such as the battles that Apple made against the Xiaomi Mi Pad, but in any case against OPPO we can only to wish her the best in view also of the upcoming debut of Ace 2, which will take place on April 13, a smartphone that should inaugurate a new range of devices from the Asian brand. Smartphone probably dedicated to China, but remember that Find X2 Lite should debut for our market soon. In short, OPPO will certainly have decidedly more positive thoughts than thinking about the dispute with Sharp.
