Smartphone maker OnePlus has just shared a new update regarding the sale of its latest OnePlus 8 series. The company revealed that it is delaying the sale of the device lineup in the Indian market. This delay is likely “due to unforeseen circumstances” the company had to “temporarily” halt its production last week. OnePlus India General Manager Vikas Agarwal noted that this delay has forced the company to delay its sales timeline. He also noted that “production is already back up and running”. The company shared more details regarding the revised sales timeline in a dedicated post on OnePlus forums. Let’s check out the new OnePlus 8 series sale timeline here.
OnePlus 8 Series sale delayed; details
According to the forum post, the company plans to “hold a special limited sale” across its online and offline channels. This limited sale event is scheduled to take place on May 29, 2020, at 12 noon. As part of the sale, the company will only sell its OnePlus 8 5G series to interested buyers. The company will share the rest of the details regarding the regular sales “soon”. This means that buyers interested in getting the OnePlus 8 Pro 5G will have to wait for some time. The change comes weeks after the company revealed the pricing of the devices in the Indian market.

Beyond this, the company also noted that users who have already pre-booked the OnePlus 8 series devices on Amazon India and OnePlus stores can make the purchase when the stocks are available.
