Xiaomi is extending the warranty coverage on Redmi and Mi products by a period of two months. This is only applicable for customers whose devices were running out of warranty coverage in May and June 2021. Additionally, Xiaomi is also letting users book an appointment with its after-sales service network online.
The company took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote: “Want to get your Xiaomi devices serviced but can’t move out and the warranty is expiring? Not to worry, we’ve got it covered! If the warranty of your Xiaomi devices is expiring in May or June this year, we will extend it by 2 months. Stay home. Stay safe.”
With this move, Xiaomi is joining the likes of Poco, Vivo and Oppo, a club that’s helping out consumers with warranty extension. Hence, those consumers who were planning to get a repair on their older phone can now wait until the COVID-19 wave is dialed down.
Some of these companies have also halted their product launches for May, citing COVID-19 as the reason. Poco was supposed to launch the Poco M3 Pro in India but that has been delayed at the moment.
Realme was among the first few companies to pull out of the product launch spree, delaying the arrival of its flagship Realme X7 Max, which itself was a renamed Realme GT Neo, the BGR India reported.
Xiaomi, on the other hand, launched two products under the Redmi brand last week. The Redmi Note 10S is the company’s fourth addition to the ever-expanding Redmi Note 10 series. The company also launched the Redmi Watch as its foray into the affordable smartwatch territory.
