- OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro were supposed to go on open sale on May 29th, but this has been rescheduled
- The company will hold a special limited sale of OnePlus 8 5G at 12PM on May 29th
OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro open sale in India was to begin on Friday, May 29th. However, OnePlus announced on Wednesday that OnePlus 8 series sale in India would be rescheduled due to a halt in production. Since the company is manufacturing the flagships in the country to keep the prices lower than their international pricing, there has been a slight delay with the release of the phones in India. However, OnePlus added there would be a special limited sale of the OnePlus 8 5G across online and offline channels at 12PM on May 29th.
Customers who have pre-booked OnePlus 8 series on Amazon.in and OnePlus stores can purchase devices when they’re in stock. OnePlus said that it would reveal the new sale schedule for both the flagships very soon and we will update you as and when that happens.
