Realme was going to unveil the Narzo 10 series smartphones on March 26 through an online event in India, but the launch was postponed due to the spread of COVID-19 in the country. However, last week Realme announced that it will unveil the Narzo series on April 21, but it seems the unveiling may get postponed once again.
Realme announced the April 21 unveiling after the Government of India allowed e-commerce companies to accept orders for non-essential items during the nation-wide lockdown, that was imposed on March 24 and got extended from April 14 to May 3.
However, the Indian goverment made a U-turn yesterday and revised its guidelines, continuing the ban on sales of non-essential goods through e-commerce companies, post which Realme sent a statement to the media saying it’s evaluating the situation and a decision about the launch of the Narzo series will be made today.

Realme also said that it was planning to begin the online sales of its smartphones from today, but with the sales of non-essential goods prohibited through online channels, you may not be able to buy any new smartphones in the country till May 3.
