Realme Cancels Launch Of Its Narzo Series Smartphones Due To India Lockdown
Highlights of the Story
- The Realme Narzo 10 and Realme Narzo 10A were to be launched at an online event on March 26.
- Both these would be refreshed versions of Realme 6i and Realme C3 Indonesian variant respectively.
- The company also said that all employees would be able to work-from-home.
Chinese smartphone maker Realme’s youth-centric smartphone line-up, the Realme Narzo series which was scheduled unveiled on 26th March, has been indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The news came out after PM Narendra Modi’s announcement to impose a nationwide lockdown for 21 days across the country. The unfortunate postponement was shared by Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth in an official tweet in which he said that the company respects the announcement made by the Honourable Prime Minister and has made the decision to cancel all upcoming and previously planned launches. He specifically mentioned the postponement of the Realme Narzo series and further advised people to stay indoors to curb the spread of the virus.
The Realme Narzo series comprises two smartphones, Narzo 10 and Narzo 10A. Unlike other Realme smartphones which were mostly camera-centric, it seems that with the Narzo series, the company wants to deliver more than just a camera phone. Leaks and teasers hint that powerful processors, impressive screens, big and efficient batteries paired with fast charging support would all you can expect with the upcoming Realme Narzo smartphones.
As per the leaks, the Narzo series will promise a great price to performance ratio and would definitely be a smart strategy to attract consumers. But now it seems that it is a bad time to launch a smartphone in the country considering the fact that almost every company is affected by the closure of manufacturing units. This also includes Xiaomi postponing the first sale of its Redmi Note 9 Pro Max due to lockdown. Online product retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart have also imposed some restrictions on online sales.
But still, we can expect the company to at least announce the smartphones officially, although the sales might start sometime next month after the country’s lockdown has been relaxed a little.
