Xiaomi fans in India have been waiting a long time to see the Mi 10 becoming a reality in the country. The company had big plans for releasing its latest flagship on March 31, however, a change of plans was necessary due to the COVID-19 crisis. The fact is that in the end of March, India’s government imposed the world’s largest lockdown to control the coronavirus in the country populated by over 1,3 billion people. All stores were closed across the country and online retailers couldn’t sell anything but essential goodies. In the end of the last month, India relaxed some lockdown policies, and now Xiaomi is ready to launch its flagship.
