Chennai: As the nation embraces lockdown 4.0 and people gear-up to step-out of their homes, the smartphone industry is slowly getting back on track.
Close to 70 per cent or approximately 50,000 of Vivo’s retail partner outlets across the country are already operational as per the guidelines of their respective State governments.
Also, there is no change in retailer margins during the pandemic, said the smartphone maker.

“Meanwhile, over 50 per cent of the service centers are already operational pan India to support our users. All retail stores and the after-sale service centers are adhering to guidelines prescribed by government and local authorities,” it said.
