OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 sale is postponed in India. OnePlus said that it had to alter its sales plan after production was halted temporarily last week. The two phones were supposed to go on sale from May 29, Friday, on Amazon India and OnePlus sites. The new sale date for the OnePlus 8 series has not been announced yet. Customers who have pre-booked the OnePlus 8 series on Amazon India or via OnePlus official channels will only be able to purchase the device as and when stocks become available.

This delay of sale was announced via a forums post. This postponement in sale could be because of the sudden halt of the Oppo manufacturing plant in Greater Noida last week, after six workers tested COVID-19 positive. This is, reportedly, to be the same factory where OnePlus assembles its phones, and the suspension could have impacted the smartphones’ sales plan in India.
The company further added that the production is already back up and running. Moreover, OnePlus will hold a special limited sale across online and offline channels for the OnePlus 8 5G at 12 PM on 29 May 2020. Notably, the customers who pre-booked OnePlus 8 Series 5G on Amazon.in and OnePlus stores can purchase devices as and when stocks are available.
The company should announce a proper sale schedule for both the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro soon.
The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro phones were launched in April, and while the price of the devices for the Indian market were announced in the same month, availability was kept a mystery. The company also started pre-bookings of the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro on Amazon India, wherein users could pay Rs. 1,000 in advance in exchange for a gift card. This gift card could be used to buy the phone till June 30. OnePlus also held a special sale for just the OnePlus 8 on May 18, and had then announced that full-fledged sale for both the phones will begin from May 29.
