OnePlus 8 series made its global debut last month but the device's release in the Indian market is still due. Although the company has announced the India pricing, pre-order offers, but we are still not sure when it will be available for purchase in India. A new report claims that OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro might go on sale on 29 May.
As reported by Forearena, the first sale of OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will take place on 29 May on Amazon and other retail stores.
Earlier, Amazon had revealed that if you buy gift cards and purchase any of the two phones, you will get a Rs 1,000 discount on redeeming. This led us to believe that these two smartphones will go on sale from 11 May, but that was not the case.
