The Xiaomi Mi 10 is all set to be launched on May 8 in India, the company has officially announced on its social media platform. As per the tweet made by the company's official account, the launch will take place through a Livestream event, which was expected given the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The Mi 10 was previously expected to be launched on March 31 (as we reported earlier), but the event was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, given the fact that the Home Ministry has now relaxed restrictions on e-commerce sites, allowing them to deliver non-essential goods in Green and Orange zones starting today, Xiaomi has decided to launch its smartphone this Friday.
