OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro sale postponed in India
The OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro availability in India has been delayed due to production issues. It is suggested that the OnePlus 8 series' production was stopped last week due to which the Chinese company had to change the sales plans in India. However, production has resumed now.
To recall, the OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro was expected to go on sale tomorrow, that is, May 29 in India. However, now the company will only hold a limited sale of the OnePlus 8 series 5G at 12 pm tomorrow.
