Last month, OnePlus revealed its eight-iteration of flagship devices namely OnePlus 8 series globally. Soon after the global unveiling, the lineup made its way to the Indian market. Like most of the smartphone brand, OnePlus has also faced numerous restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
For instance, the device was originally expected to go on sale on May 11 which didn’t happen. The official sale was then pushed back to May 29 for both regular and Pro variants. As the sale day is inching closer, the Chinese smartphone maker announced yet another delay. Unlike the previous delays, this time we don’t have any particular sale date to look forward to.
