The Lenovo Legion 5 powered by AMD Ryzen 7 4800H and NVIDIA RTX 2060 will be available in Germany on Black Friday, according to a Lenovo customer rep. This information comes in the wake of an ongoing patent dispute between Nokia and Lenovo wherein the former sought an injunction against Lenovo resulting in a nationwide sales ban. Lenovo has since challenged the injunction and has resumed laptop and tablet sales in the region.

Recently, Lenovo and Nokia were at loggerheads in Germany over a patent dispute involving the H.264 standard also known as MPEG-4 part 10 and Advanced Video Coding (AVC). Nokia filed a case of patent infringement against Lenovo and got an injunction imposed on the Chinese manufacturer from the Munich Court preventing the sales of Lenovo laptops and tablets in Germany for almost two weeks. 

This injunction cast doubts on availability of Lenovo laptops in Germany as the local website didn't stock or feature any laptops or tablets for sale till recently. Lenovo smartphones were reportedly unaffected by the ban.

Now, user /u/herrodisismrping has posted a chat transcript on Reddit inquiring about the availability of a Legion 5 gaming laptop powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, NVIDIA RTX 2060, and a 144 Hz display in Germany and Austria. The customer service rep replied that laptops with AMD processors will be available again on Black Friday (27-Nov-2020).

This availability information comes in the wake of Lenovo managing to quash the Munich Court's order by appealing at the Munich Higher Regional Court thereby resuming sales of laptops and tablets.

For those not aware, according to Nokia, Lenovo infringed on the former's H.264 patents by virtue of not licensing them. Lenovo disagrees with Nokia stating that the Finnish company is refusing to license the technology at a fair price. The Chinese manufacturer also said that it is committed to resolving this issue under fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms.
