The Xiaomi Mi 10 was scheduled to be launch in India on 31 March. The date, however, was postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown imposed by the Government of India from 25 March.
As the lockdown in the country has entered its third phase on 4 May, the Ministry of Home Affairs has relaxed some norms for e-commerce sites, including selling of non-essential goods in orange zones and green zones. Following the relaxation, Xiaomi has decided to launch its much-awaited flagship Mi 10 5G in India.
