    I've been trying to get the phone for about a month now. On Mondays and Thursdays (limited sales), the website says 'out of stock' 10 seconds after it becomes available. Same with Amazon. There's almost no information regarding the same. Pl advice.

    as they have said, there are very limited numbers of 8 Pros available due to covid related supply chain issues. There is also lots of demand, so they will sell very quickly. it does look like some of all the models were available today in India (https://oneplusstock.net/india/oneplus-8-pro). Until things go back to normal, you just need to be quick/lucky to get one.

    If u don't know then let me tell u that the sale on amazon starts at around 11:40 not at 12.. so it shows sold out within seconds after 12..
    if u have the device in ur wishlist or saved for later section then u can checkout with the device at 11:40

    Thank you very much for replying :)
    Are the limited sales still going on ? Many threads have said they have been halted.

    As others have already pointed out the SALE actually starts before 12 PM, I will tell you what worked for me on 25th June SALE.

    I had already added all the variants in my Wishlist and I started refreshing the amazon Wishlist page at around 11:30.
    At around 11:33AM one of the variants was available from one seller, I immediately clicked on "See buying options" (clicking on the Item name won't work), added the product in my cart and completed the transaction at around 11:35AM. (The sale started at 12 noon with everything already out of stock :p )


    All you need to do is keep on refreshing your Wishlist page and forget about anything else.

    well to my understanding that's not the case. They already stopped the sale due to defects. I have seen defects till 25 June manufactured devices.

    My friend purchased the device on 25th.. his device has no defects at all.. sale has been paused due to corona positive workers in oppo factory.. and to boost oneplus nord pre orders..

    I too have tinting, but that is fixable via an OTA update. But im not sure about Black bar, and as long as OP doesn't relaease any official statement regarding a fix for black bar, i cannot accept this product!

    anyway, im going to return. If they fix these display issurs, i'll buy again for one more time.... or i will shift to samsung after 5 years of Oneplus life. This is enough! Im done! Im not a gamer, but for my social media purpose, samsung suits well!
