Nearly two months after the global launch of the OnePlus 8 series smartphones, both these handsets are yet to be freely available in India. While the India launch of these handsets was delayed because of the lockdown, OnePlus later ran into production issues after several employees at their NOIDA plant tested positive for COVID-19. This led to further delays as far as the open availability of both the handsets were concerned. Nevertheless, OnePlus seems to have finally sorted their manufacturing issues and is reportedly readying to start the sales of the OnePlus 8 Pro early next week. Recent reports indicate that the first sale of the OnePlus 8 Pro is scheduled to take place on June 15. We also have information that indicates that the lower-priced OnePlus 8 model shall also be on sale on the same day. If you recall, the OnePlus 8 did go on sale earlier (on June 8), so this is not the first time that the lower-priced member of the OnePlus 8 series has gone on sale in the country.
Now that the OnePlus 8 Pro shall be made available to consumers across the country, it is time we take a look at its spec sheet once again.
