As India continues to struggle with the second wave of COVID-19, Poco India has announced that it is extending the warranty of smartphones by two months.
This only applies to smartphones that will be out of warranty in May or June. This means, if the warranty of your Poco device was scheduled to end this May/June, it will now automatically be extended to July/August. Smartphone owners don't need to do anything for this warranty extension, Poco says it has “already extended the warranty”.
The extended warranty for Poco smartphones was announced on Twitter.
We know that the past few months have been extremely difficult on everyone. To make things easier, we're extending *. All, for your safety.
*For everyone whose warranty expires in the month of May/ June. pic.twitter.com/pY984k78UG

The company said that it has taken this step due to the rising cases in the second wave of the coronavirus-induced lockdowns.
In Addition, Poco India has also announced that it will not conduct any product launches in May 2021. “We are pausing our new launches as we hope for the situation to improve,” Poco India said.
