In Russia ceased to bring Chinese smartphones due virus: manufacturers Huawei, Xiaomi, Vivo, Realme, ZTE and Lenovo began to move the timing of deliveries of gadgets due to the spread of a new deadly virus. About it reports “Kommersant” with reference to sources among the partners of these brands.
This is because due to coronavirus factory extended holidays in honor of the Chinese New year, they will not work at least until February 10, but the term can be extended. One of the sources added that this also applies to Apple products, which is collected in China.
For those companies, whose production is concentrated in China, the delivery time will be displaced for at least two weeks. However, retailers do not expect shortages of goods. If the delivery is stopped, it will lead to an increase in the cost of smartphones by 10-15 percent, said analyst of Mobile Research Group Eldar Murtazin. Higher prices will bring down demand, which together have a negative impact on the market.
Epidemiologists have established that the source of the virus are wild animals whose meat is sold on the market in Wuhan. As of January 30, the number of cases exceeded 7.8 thousand, more than 200 infected died.
