The OnePlus 8 series was launched about a month ago and not first in India, well, due to the nationwide lockdown. The company revealed the price of its newest flagships in India and put them for sale a couple of weeks ago, with no sale date in sight. Yesterday, we learned that the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be available to buy in India by the end of this month. But now, the company has officially announced the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro India sale dates.
Through its Red Cable Club community, OnePlus today revealed that the OnePlus 8 series will go on sale from 29th May in India. The new flagships will be up for sale on Amazon India, OnePlus’ website, and other retail stores.
But, there’s some good news for fans who have already placed pre-orders via Amazon over the past couple of weeks. You will be able to punch in orders before everyone else, starting from 18th May (i.e. Monday next week).
Further, the blog post mentioned that limited edition ‘pop-up boxes’ will also be available at launch. Red Club cable members will get access a day early on 28th May. You will only need to pay Rs. 1000 extra over the retail price of the OnePlus 8 or 8 Pro to get a pair of Bullets Wireless Z earphones, a Cyan Bumper Case, and a Nylon (with OnePlus 8) or Karbon Bumper Case (with OnePlus 8 Pro) alongwith the devices. You can head to this link to check out the complete details of the pop-up bundles.
