After PM Narendra Modi ordered the national shutdown, Xiaomi agreed to delay the production of its Mi 10 flagship in India. The company says that the condition will be reviewed and a new launch day shortly announced.
The phone was launched in February in China and was supposed to launch on 31 March in India. Nonetheless, a number of smartphone manufacturers have canceled the country’s launch events after the government restricted the selling of products that were not necessary.
The government is officially shut down for 21 days and only vital commodities can be purchased for the time being.
Xiaomi publicly announced the suspension of the Mi 10 launch. The organization says in an official statement that “After careful deliberation, we have taken the decision to postpone the launch of Xiaomi’s flagship Mi 10 in India, which was scheduled on 31st March 2020. We are evaluating the situation and will release a revised launch date soon.”
Xiaomi says it concentrates its resources and cooperation in the war against the COVID-19 pandemic in support of the government. Chef Manu Kumar Jain of Xiaomi India confirmed that Mi 10 launching on Twitter has been delayed, too.
As a result of the lock-up and travel constraints imposed by governments, the technologist has also postponed the first sale of the newly released Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The Redmi Note 9 Pro was last released on 24 March and a new flash sales date was not revealed afterward.
Besides Xiaomi, Realme also has for the time being suspended every project in India. Tomorrow was scheduled to begin with the Realme Narzo 10 and Realme Narzo 10A phones, but this event was canceled too. Brands such as Vivo will also be moving their releases in April.
