OnePlus announced the India prices of its latest flagships – the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro last month through its Red Cable club. Te Red Cable Club is exclusive to OnePlus phone users and offers several benefits including free cloud storage and OnePlus Care benefits. The company also started accepting pre-orders for the latest phones on Amazon India last month and listed the pop-up boxes of both devices on its official store.
However, the actual sale date of these smartphones was still in the dark, that is, until now. OnePlus has once again announced the sale date of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro through its Red Cable Club.
OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro sale date in India
OnePlus has announced that the latest smartphones will go on sale in India starting May 29th across all channels including online and offline. Additionally, the brand will open sales for the limited edition pop-up boxes for both OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro a day early on May 28th. However, the pop-up box sales are exclusive to Red Cable Club members and will be made available through invite codes only.
OnePlus is offering a few freebies in the pop-up boxes, including the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z earphones (priced at Rs 1,999), a new Cyan Sandstone case, and a Nylon Bumper case for OnePlus 8 or Karbon Bumper case for the OnePlus 8 Pro.
