As India continues to struggle with the second wave of COVID-19, Poco India has announced that it is extending smartphones by two months. This only applies to smartphones that will be out of warranty in May or June. This means, if the warranty of your Poco device was scheduled to end this May/June, it will now automatically be extended to July/August. Smartphone owners don’t need to do anything for this warranty extension; Poco says it has “already extended the warranty.”
Poco India has also announced that it will not conduct any product launches in May 2021. “We are pausing our new launches as we hope for the situation to improve,” Poco India said.
On Tuesday, Asus India announced that it is cancelling its launch event scheduled for 12 May and all other upcoming ROG and PC launches in India, in light of the growing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
“India is going through a very challenging time, and our heart goes out to all in time of this crisis. We know the media has been awaiting the new ROG Flow X13 and Zephyrus line-up; however, keeping in view the current situation, Asus India has decided to cancel all upcoming PC and ROG launches,” Asus India Business Head Arnold Su said in a press statement.
