We inform you today that Apple may have problems with entire iPhone shipments due to the closure of production lines in China, now it seems that Asus may also be starting to be affected for the same reason.
Asus did not issue a note saying that "the supply chain has been interrupted due to the general situation in Asia", which will cause a temporary shortage of the ROG Phone II. I think the motive here is the same, the Coronavrus.
The statement said Asustek will work to ensure a rapid return to production. However, it is not clear whether this will particularly affect sales of Rog Phone II in India, or in other markets as well. Sources reported that in some places in India it is still possible to find units of the Asus gamer smartphone.
Asus' statement was issued after the Chinese coronavirus outbreak, but it is not clear whether the "discontinuation" was related to the virus outbreak. Everything suggests that it is.
Like factories, on the official Apple China website for example, there is information that, based on recent public health and prevention considerations, from now until 24:00 on February 9, the Apple Store will be temporarily closed.
Everything indicates that the closing of the factories may be causing delays in many deliveries that were already scheduled and for issues already raised here before, about the Coronavirus, this starts to cause problems in the device supply schedules in some regions.
It is worth remembering that Xiaomi kept the Mi 10 launch date for the next 13th, but the event will be online, the face-to-face event will not be held.
