POCO has announced that it is extending the warranty of its smartphones in India by two months. The warranty extension is valid only for users whose smartphone warranty expires in May or June.

In case users experience any issues with their devices and are unable to get them fixed during the lockdown, they can take advantage of the extended warranty. The company recently also announced that it is delaying the launch of its new products owing to the current situation.

POCO smartphones get two months of additional warranty due to the second COVID-19 wave

POCO has announced that it is extending the warranty of smartphones by two months in India. However, not all users can get the warranty extended.

Users whose smartphone warranty ends in May or June will get the extended warranty. The company has decided to extend the warranty amid the COVID-19 second wave. Several states are currently in a lockdown or have several restrictions. This has resulted in smartphone service centres remaining shut in most parts of the country.

Users who have their devices under warranty and experience any issue during the two months can get it fixed later.  The company also announced that it will not host any event or launch new products in May 2021. The company was rumoured to introduce new smartphones, including the M3 Pro and the much-anticipated POCO F3 GT. The two smartphones are expected to launch in June or July provided the situation improves.

Other companies like Realme and Micromax have also cancelled their launch events in May 2021. Asus India has also delayed the launch of its ZenFone 8 series and other products in India.
