Most of us have already accepted that COVID-19 is a disease that we will have to live with for some time. With this realisation, governments across the world are easing restrictions, due to which people are now able to travel once again and purchase all kinds of products — essential or non-essential. This has led many smartphone manufacturers to start launching smartphones once again.
