OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro pre-orders open on Amazon India, sales begin May 11th

OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will go on sale in India sometime this summer. The latest flagships from the brand were launched globally earlier this week. Very recently, the company announced the Indian pricing of the latest smartphones and also listed the pop-up boxes of both devices on its official website.

Now, OnePlus has gone ahead and started taking pre-orders for both smartphones in the Amazon India website. As usual, users will have to pre-book by purchasing a gift card worth Rs 1,000, which can be later redeemed against the purchase of the device of choice. OnePlus has also revealed the sale date on the ecommerce website. Here’s everything we know about the pre-booking of OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
