Smartphone maker Poco has extended the warranty of its products that were scheduled to lose their warranty in May or June 2021. Poco India announced that if a user’s warranty is expiring in May or June this year, then it has extended the warranty of the products by two months. Poco said that it has taken the decision in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country. Poco also announced that it will not conduct any launch in May 2021. “We are pausing our new launches as we hope for the situation to improve. We will keep you posted on further developments,” the company said in a statement.
