OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones in April this year. The brand was expected to make these smartphones available through open sales starting May 29th, however, due to unforeseen circumstances and production issues, the open sales were delayed. As a result, the company has been selling both OnePlus 8 series smartphones through flash sales for some time now.
It now seems that OnePlus has enough inventory for the standard OnePlus 8 model. The smartphone is now available through open sale on both Amazon and the OnePlus official online store. All colour variants and configurations are up for grabs on both websites.
