Perhaps the outbreak of coronavirus will allow manufacturers to permanently change the format of such events.
Xiaomi has officially announced that it has canceled all offline press conferences dedicated to the announcement of new products that were to be held in India in March this year.
Due to the appearance of reports of recorded cases of coronavirus infection in some parts of the country, we decided not to conduct offline events to launch new products. We think about the safety of our fans, media friends, employees and partners. Please, take care of yourself.
Earlier, the company canceled offline press conferences in China; for the first time in history, the flagship smartphone of the Xiaomi Mi line was presented in the format of an online press conference.
Perhaps the outbreak of coronavirus will allow manufacturers to permanently change the format of such events. Indeed, this will obviously allow to further reduce costs, and potential buyers will still receive all the necessary information.
An online press conference on Redmi Note 9 will take place on March 12.
