    But for those who wanted to get their current devices exchanged the wait has become longer. The old product exchange is not available on Flipkart due to the lockdown amidst the Covid-19 outbreak.

    The Lenovo-owned smartphone brand had originally planned to release the smartphone in the country on April 2. It was postponed to April 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and later moved to May 8.

    Dont purchase Chinese products. All major importers who have license to import Chinese products are sons & relatives of central minister politicians & sons of high profile secratries of all ministries.
    Who will arrest these traitors / anti nationals. Because a general business man will never get license/ clearance to import all these products in such large quantities. Even if anybody dares, his import products will get entangled in some law clutches, because their fathers are sitting in various ministries.
    So understand import from China will never stop due to this bureaucrats politician nexus

    Ban any Chinese trash phones coming to India. Indians on their own must refrain from touching anything that is Chinese. It is time world unites to destroy Chinese economy and teach China a lesson so they never repeat the Covid like mischief again.
