    Hey everyone,

    Hope you’ve been keeping well during these times. During these unprecedented times, the health and wellbeing of our employees, community, partners and contractors has always remained our top priority.

    In the past couple of weeks, we shared information about pricing for the OnePlus 8 Series 5G in India and about availability and sale dates.

    Although we were looking to have 29th May as our open sales date for the OnePlus 8 Series 5G, due to unforeseen circumstances, our production was temporarily halted last week and has altered our sales plan. Because of this, we had to reschedule our date for open sales in India.

    But we’re happy to let you know that production is already back up and running. In order to start bringing the OnePlus 8 Series 5G to you as quickly as possible, we will hold a special limited sale across online and offline channels for the OnePlus 8 5G at 12PM on 29 May, 2020.

    The new sales schedule for the full OnePlus 8 Series5G lineup – The OnePlus 8 5G and the OnePlus 8 Pro 5G will be out soon. Stay tuned!

    We can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate your patience through these challenging circumstances. Many of you have been telling us how eager you are to get your hands on the OnePlus 8 Series 5G, and we have been equally excited to bring these devices to you as quickly as possible. Hope you agree it has all been worth the wait!

    Note: Customers who pre-booked OnePlus 8 Series 5G on amazon.in and OnePlus stores can purchase devices as and when stocks are available.

    Hello Vikas,

    Thank you for the update. In challenging times like these it can be difficult to stick to schedules. While the delay is unfortunate, I'm confident that things will get back to normal soon. Hopefully, you will be able to fulfill orders at warp speeds soon!

    All the best :)

    Another marketing gimmick by one plus. They are just creating a fake hype. If this was true they should have informed customers before them announcing that the one plus pro 8 bundle invite codes will be available.

    We understand delays but what we cannot accept is the attitude that One plus has for its fans. I think this brand is just showing off that they have too many customers. If a few people boycott the brand they will learn their lesson.

    Just wanted to put 1 thing out there. Don't you all think because of the constant delays we are more and more approaching towards the 8T cycle of things and thus the 8/8 Pro will be now become older even quicker. I am assuming that the launch cycle of the T series will be similar to past years, i.e. around September/October.
    So, do you guys think 1+ can/should skip altogether the launch of 8T/8T Pro series and come next year with the 9 series? Or should they just address the shortcomings of highly criticized 8 and launch only the 8T (I believe 8 Pro is already brilliant)? Share your thoughts.

    Oneplus need to consider promotional offer end date in Amazon. Currently it is 30 June 2020, if that date postpone till 31 july 2020 then it will be great.

    Is this some kind of joke? I have been waiting since 1st march My birthday.

    Oh so bad! How can OnePlus do that to you?! Sure your birthday is much more important than the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns which affected the production.
    You should take this up with Pete Lau!

    It's very bad making people pre-order first and then making them wait for a long time , I have been extending purchasing a new phone just for OnePlus 8 pro looks like I might have to buy a different phone.

    Bro, m not saying that this pandemic is not imp. but other company phones are also releasing with proper planning. They declare their sale date only after they have ample amount of pieces ready to sale, not before production.
    M sorry if you hurt anyhow.

    Bro their production was shut down a week before the sale. They weren't expecting it. It is bound to affect production. They still have the sale on 29th. I hope you get your hands on the device then.[e]1f44d[/e]
