The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) has one month of stock of devices for sale in India, he added. The coronavirus threat in the long run can severely impact the flow of key components required to assemble smartphones at manufacturing facilities of several Chinese players in India. When asked if Poco would follow the same go-to market strategy as Xiaomi, Manmohan said: “Xiaomi is a lot bigger brand. I don’t think we are in a position to compete with them right now. We are starting to work with online channels first and will start expanding into offline channel later”. Also Read - Poco X2 launched in India: 120Hz display, Snapdragon 730G and other top features
