Poco offers an extended warranty to all customers whose warranty expires in May and June. Poco has extended the warranty for such customers in India by two months. The company’s move comes amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country. The company has also announced that it will not launch any new devices in May. Poco also said it will keep its consumers informed of any new developments regarding upcoming product launches or warranty extensions.

The extended warranty for Poco smartphones was announced on twitter. The company announced that the smartphones that are said to be out of warranty will expire in May and June. Poco grants customers who fall under this criterion an additional guarantee of two months. The company said it took the move due to the increase in cases in the second wave of coronavirus-induced lockdowns.

In a press release, Poco said it would “reiterate that nothing is more important than the well-being of our employees, consumers, members of the Poco family and anyone associated with us.”

Commenting on the upcoming releases, Poco said it “made a conscious decision not to launch in May 2021”. The company added, “We are pausing our launches as we hope the situation will improve.”

This isn’t the first time a company has extended the warranty on its products due to COVID-19. In 2020, many brands offered extended warranties on their products for up to 75 days. OnePlus was one such brand that not only extended its warranty, but also extended the return and exchange of their devices from 15 to 30 days. In addition, OnePlus offered free two-way shipping for all returns, replacements, and repairs. Other brands that offered an extended warranty in 2020 were Samsung, Nokia, Lenovo, and Motorola.
