Xiaomi pushes back Mi 10 launch

Xiaomi was supposed to launch its next flagship, the Mi 10 series in India today. However, due to the lockdown and circumstances, the launch has been indefinitely pushed back. To help the government’s effort to contain the coronavirus outbreak, Xiaomi has also shut its Mi Home stores across the country.

Manu Kumar Jain confirmed earlier on Twitter that the company won’t be offering home delivery for a temporary period. These decisions come after Xiaomi announced that it won’t proceed with the sale of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max on March 25, 2020. The Xiaomi Mi 10 in India will now happen once the lockdown is lifted by the government. However, there is no timeline given by the company just yet.
