“Vivo has announced it is suspending all new product launches in the country starting with the Vivo V19”
Vivo V19 launch in India has been suspended due to the spread of coronavirus in the country. With many states in India under lockdown, the company has announced that it will be suspending all new product launches in the country starting with the Vivo V19. To recall, the Vivo V19 India launch was originally supposed to take place on March 26th. The company has apparently delayed the launch to April 3rd, as reported by Appandphones. Vivo has now indefinitely postponed the the launch of the smartphone and any other upcoming Vivo phone, and the company plans to focus its time and effort towards Covid-19 relief efforts.
Vivo in a statement has announced that it is working with government authorities and is in the process of procuring and donating surgical and N95 masks for doctors and healthcare workers. Xiaomi has also separately announced that it will also be donating lakhs of masks to the government and hospitals across India.
It’s a difficult time and the world needs all the help it can get.
