The announcement was made by Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth on Twitter. The brand was supposed to announce the Dimensity 1200-powered X7 Max and new Realme smart TV on May 4th. With the upcoming event now cancelled, it’s unclear when the company will resume product launches.

In his tweet, Sheth added that Realme is focussing on contributing to COVID relief as much as possible. The brand is donating one lakh masks via its offline stores and also partnering with civil society organizations to address the current oxygen shortage crisis. 

On May 4th, Realme would have debuted the much anticipated Realme X7 Max smartphone. It is tipped to be the rebranded Realme GT Neo. The upcoming offering was teased to be India’s first Dimensity 1200 powered device. Sheth had also confirmed the arrival of Realme TV 4K 43 as well as teased 49 and 50-inch variants. Apart from the postponed product launches, Realme’s 3rd-year anniversary celebration also stands cancelled. The brand conducts sale with attractive offers and discounts during this period. 

We can expect Realme to resume product launches and other events once the COVID-19 situation eases in the country. Currently, many states have imposed lockdown-like restrictions. Last year, a number of brands suspended their product launches as well as delayed sale dates during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
