Today, Huawei and Oppo announced signing a major agreement of cross-licensing global technology patent. This agreement includes sharing of patents such as smartphone networks and 5G.


A cross-licensing agreement is a contract between two or more parties where each party grants rights to their intellectual property to the other parties.

This could be a major move for Huawei and Oppo, as they enrich the cooperation by supporting the innovation of technology using patents and investing more to improve them. Currently, there’s not much information revealed about the agreement.

However, we remain optimistic about the changes it could bring to the smartphone and tech industry.

“After more than 20 years of continuous innovation, Huawei has developed multiple high-value patent portfolios in the global marketplace in domains like 5G, Wi-Fi, and audio/video codecs,” said Alan Fan, Head of Huawei’s Intellectual Property Department. “We are delighted to have reached a cross-licensing agreement with OPPO. The mutual recognition of intellectual property value between companies is a major step towards fostering a positive cycle of innovation and research in high-value standards: investing, receiving returns from investment, and then reinvesting. This will enable our industry to keep innovating and provide consumers with more competitive products and services.”

“We are very pleased to enter into a patent cross-licensing agreement with Huawei. It clearly demonstrates that the two companies recognize and greatly respect the value of each other’s intellectual property. It is a win-win deal for both sides,” stated Adler Feng, OPPO’s Chief Intellectual Property Officer. “We will, as always, advocate for the establishment of a sustainable, healthy intellectual property ecosystem, where intellectual property licenses can be resolved through amicable negotiations and every company’s patent value are highly respected.”
