The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro were listed on the company’s India website at last. Customers in the country have been eagerly waiting for the highly-anticipated flagships since their release earlier this month. However, the company had to delay the availability of this device. After all, it was impossible for customers to purchase smartphones in India. Due to the COVID-19, the government imposed huge lockdown policies and stated that retailers would only be able to sell essential goodies. During the past few days, the government decided to relax the quarantine allowing major online retailers to sell smartphones.
Now, the OnePlus 8 series is available for pre-order, however, the actual sales will begin on May 11. To celebrate the start of the sales period the Amazon decided to offer an INR 1,000 (~$13) cashback at Amazon Pay account. Users will need to purchase a gift card worth at least INR1,000 now. Moreover, they’ll need to use it towards the purchase of an OnePlus 8 phone between May 11 and June 30. After 30 days, the company will give INR 1,000 cashback.
OnePlus is also selling its latest smartphone through the company’s local website. The prices start at INR44,990 ($595/€550) and go up to INR59,999 ($800/€730). Unfortunately, customers getting the phone there won’t be prized with any pre-order gift. So for the sake of gifts, the Amazon offer still looks like the best deal.
