Considering that lockdown is imposed in many states in India, smartphone manufacturers are extending the warranty period on their products. Recently, we saw Xiaomi and OPPO extending warranties on their devices, which will allow users to get their smartphones fixed under warranty if it runs out during the lockdowns. A similar initiative was announced by Vivo a few days ago. Vivo announced that it will be providing an additional 30-day warranty for those users whose device warranty runs out in the lockdown. Now, in a recent development, Realme has announced that it will be providing an extended warranty on its products till July 31st. The company announced these details via a tweet today, where the smartphone maker said that it is taking this initiative for the safety of its users.

Realme mentioned in the tweet that those products whose warranty expires between May 1 to June 30 will get an extended warranty till July 31st. “In these difficult times, we have decided to take a step towards the safety of our users. We would like to announce a warranty extension till 31st July on all #realme products whose warranty is expiring from 1st May – 30th June 2021″, mentions Realme in a tweet. With this type of initiative, users who are not able to get their smartphones repaired in a lockdown can take advantage of the extended warranty. Considering that country is going through the second COVID-19 wave, all the smartphone service centers are closedown in most of the states.
As the country is going through the COVID-19 crisis, we also saw many smartphone makers postponing their launch events. Realme for example had scheduled launch event on May 4th for the launch of the Realme X7 Max and the Realme TVs. However, later on, the company’s CEO posted a tweet, confirming that the launch event was canceled. Similarly, we saw ASUS canceling the Zenfone 8 series launch. The Zenfone 8 and the Zenfone 8 Flip went official on May 12th. These devices were tipped to launch simultaneously in India on May 12th alongside the global launch. However, ASUS’s Business Head Dinesh Sharma confirmed through a tweet that unless the current COVID situation in India improves, ASUS won’t be launching the Zenfone 8 lineup in the country.
