We tried contacting Flipkart as well as Huawei, but none of them has responded to our mails by the time of writing this article. The company seeking a valuable consumers should have released the devices on the actual release date which was announced earlier, but instead they are making it uncertain. It only points at one thing, that the company wasn’t ready to address the mass product demands and seeking time to build stocks to fulfill it.
We will update this post if we receive any information from Flipkart or Huawei Team.
