This move comes just hours after rival smartphone company Xiaomi canceled the on-ground launch of its Redmi Note 9.

If the situation does not improve, these companies may need to cancel more launch events. Also Read - Realme Band sale in India on March 5 at 2PM via Realme.com: Check confirmed features

These cancellations are likely to push more companies to chancel their events. The gradually increasing number of Coronavirus cases is not likely to improve the situation.
