Hello Khadas Community!

We are writing this newsletter to inform you that our Spring Festival Holiday will start on January 19th and end on the 28th. During this time, our responses to your support requests on Khadas Forum will be slower than usual and new orders from Khadas Shop will not be sent out. If you are in urgent need of Khadas' products, orders from or will still be shipped immediately. What's more, you could also order from our distributors.
