Thanks to the lockdown relaxations by the Indian government, e-commerce is finally functional across green and orange zones. Brands like Vivo, Xiaomi, Realme, and Samsung have started accepting orders for smartphones and other electronics, though deliveries might take a bit longer than the usual. Realme says that it has been receiving “massive orders” since May 4th and the company will be able to meet the current demand through the existing stock until its manufacturing plants re-open.

Realme is said to have approached the government to get necessary approvals for re-opening limited production lines with safety measurements, the Economic Times reports. “If we receive the approval, our factory’s primary task will be on producing the new Narzo series and the popular existing models including Realme 6 series,” said in a statement. Realme offline stores and service centres in green zones and orange zones are gradually starting operations in accordance with the respective government advisory and guidelines.

Realme is also extending the warranty of products that were expired during the lockdown period until June 30th. “Finally, we want to reinstate that realme along with partners will ensure strict social distancing precautions while operating and making sure that the orders are delivered safely to the customers. Realme has also procured necessary permissions for the vehicles to pick up goods and steps are taken to ensure proper supply to the customers,” Realme noted.
