Xiaomi, POCO, OPPO, and Vivo Extend Warranty on Products Due to COVID-19 Lockdown
The second wave of COVID-19 has hit India hard. Looking at the worsening situation, many states across India have imposed a lockdown. While this is a great way to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it poses an issue for those people who want to get their smartphones and electronics repaired, especially for the people whose device’s warranty is expiring soon. Well, if you own a smartphone from Xiaomi, POCO, OPPO, or Vivo, you don’t have to worry about the warranty getting lapsed during the lockdown period as these brands have extended the warranty period on their products in the light of the COVID-19 lockdown.
