Realme had earlier planned to host its three-year anniversary event on May 4. It was expected to launch Realme X7 Max and other products at the event.
Realme’s move comes when the country is grappling with a new wave of Covid-19 pandemic. India on Thursday saw a single-day rise of 379,257 coronavirus cases, pushing the total tally to 1,8,376,524.
“Continuing with its stellar run, India’s smartphone market registered a third consecutive quarter of record shipments in Q1 2021, riding on pent-up demand. Consumer confidence also increased due to the beginning of a vaccination drive in the country. But these numbers should be taken with caution as a second and more virulent wave of COVID-19 is currently on in the country and is likely to impact the coming quarters. The consumer demand will take a hit due to the ongoing COVID-19 wave and subsequent lockdowns,” Counterpoint’s Senior Research Analyst Prachir Singh said earlier this week.
