OnePlus seems to be registering pre-orders for its new range of mobile phones but due to the government’s regulation in place will not be able to deliver orders before the lockdown ends that’s in place due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The Indian government has also restricted e-commerce companies from delivering mobile phones or laptops and as such smartphone manufacturers have come to a standstill.
Since the lockdown has been in effect, OnePlus has announced its new series of smartphones alongside Apple iPhone SE 2020. There’s no word when the iPhone SE 2020 will go on sale but until the government allows e-commerce companies to deliver non-essential goods we’ll have to wait for the lockdown to lift.
OnePlus 8 series pricing and availability
OnePlus 8 starts at Rs 41,999 in India while the OnePlus 8 Pro starts at Rs 54,999 for the base variant. The OnePlus 8 comes in three variants– 6GB RAM / 128GB storage at Rs 41,999, 8GB RAM / 128GB storage at Rs 44,999 and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage at Rs 49,999.

OnePlus 8 Pro starts at Rs 54,999 for the base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and Rs 59,999 for the top-end model with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The maxed-out variant is also available in a third, Ultramarine Blue colour.
OnePlus has also released it’s new Bullets Wireless Z at Rs 1,999 but currently, it’s not known when these pair of earbuds will go on sale. Similarly, there is no information around the availability of the Warp Charge 30 wireless charging dock.
Having said that, we expect OnePlus to reveal more information around open sale dates and delivery schedules as it starts accepting pre-orders for OnePlus 8 series.
