OnePlus 8 Pro to Go on Sale in India for First Time on June 15

OnePlus 8 Pro was initially planned to go on sale in India by May end

Highlights
  • OnePlus 8 Pro first sale will take place through Amazon and OnePlus.in
  • OnePlus is set to conduct limited sales twice a week
  • OnePlus 8 Pro will be available in limited quantities

OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 will be available for purchase in India on Monday, June 15, the company revealed through a tweet posted on Friday. This will notably be the first sale of the OnePlus 8 Pro, though the company conducted some sales for the OnePlus 8 after the launch of both new phones in April. OnePlus highlighted in a forum post that the OnePlus 8 Pro “will first drop with limited quantities”. However, the company has assured that it will continue with limited sales of both the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.

The new update comes a couple of weeks after OnePlus had to halt the regular sale of the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8, apparently due to the sudden suspension of an Oppo manufacturing plant in Greater Noida last month after some workers tested COVID-19 positive. The facility was used to manufacture OnePlus phones alongside various Oppo models.

OnePlus in its latest forum post mentioned that the production of the OnePlus 8 series is “officially back on track” and is “in motion and the stock supply is stable”. However, the company claimed that due to “huge demand,” it has taken the route of conducting limited sales initially for both the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8.

Initially, OnePlus was supposed to start selling the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 in India by May end.
