Poco on Wednesday announced a warranty extension scheme for select Poco users by two months. The decision comes amid growing cases of Covid-19 and lockdowns in various parts of the country.

Poco’s warranty extension scheme applies to all Poco users whose warranty was expiring in May or June this year. The company will automatically extend the warranty by two months.

“We would like to inform you that if your warranty is expiring of your products by in May or June this year then we have already extended the warranty of your products by two months. We would want our customers to take full care of themselves and their loved ones and not worry one bit about their Poco devices. We’ve got them covered,” the company said in a note.

Additionally, Poco India said it would not conduct any new launch in May 2021. The company said it had paused new launches.

Poco isn’t the only one to pause launches in the country due to the new wave of Covid-19. Earlier this month, Realme postponed its India event due to the pandemic. The company was expected to launch a range of new devices, including Realme 7 Max.

“As India battles unprecedented challenges, we urge you all to follow relevant Covid-19 safety protocols. In the wake of the current situation, realme has decided to postpone upcoming launch of products and anniversary celebrations. Request you all to focus on your families and yourselves. It is time for us to stick together and support each other as one community,” Realme had said.

The pandemic is also likely to adversely impact the smartphone industry. According to a recent Counterpoint Research report, the first quarter of 2021 saw a record 23% year-over-year growth. But experts warn of a decline in the coming quarters due to the current Covid-19 situation.
