Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak and the ensuing health crisis, smartphone manufactures have either postponed launch events or have transitioned to virtual gatherings. Since India is also currently under a lockdown that is expected to lift the same day as the OnePlus 8 launch, the Indian government has hinted that they’re considering the viability of an extension to the lockdown.
Keeping in mind that smartphone manufacturers in India like Xiaomi and Realme have put a restriction on further production of smartphones, it’s currently not known when the OnePlus 8 phones will make it to the country.
Additionally, most of the specifications including the pricing have been leaked in the past few days with OnePlus even revealing some of the key features to keep the hype train going.
