OnePlus 8 Pro to go on sale for the first time in India: Here are the alternatives to consider

OnePlus 8 Pro will go on sale for the first time today, June 15 in India. The OnePlus 8 series sale schedule was previously delayed due to production issues likely caused due to the Coronavirus outbreak. However, now the company has confirmed that the OnePlus 8 Pro is finally going on sale on June 15 from 12PM. The catch, however, is that it will be available in limited qualities. 

In a blog post published on OnePlus forums, the company has revealed that although the production of OnePlus 8 series is in full swing, the demand for the new phones is much higher than it expected and in order to maintain a consistent supply, OnePlus will be hosting limited sales twice a week on Amazon India and OnePlus India store. 

Interestingly, June 15 will be the first time the OnePlus 8 Pro goes on sale as the company has only been selling the OnePlus 8 since May 29 in limited numbers. The customers who hold a OnePlus pop-up box invite code can also redeem their vouchers on OnePlus India store and those who pre-booked the phones will be eligible to purchase the phone as stocks arrive on Amazon India.

OnePlus 8 Pro is priced starting at Rs 54,999 for the base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage while the maxed-out variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage is up for grabs at Rs 59,999. 

The phone goes on its first sale on June 15 in India across Amazon India and OnePlus India store.
