OnePlus executives said that the OnePlus 8 series made in India will be launched in the Indian market by the end of May. OnePlus’ new flagship smartphone is currently being produced at the company’s manufacturing facility in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
‘We expect it to turn into strong sales in the coming months.’ OnePlus India General Manager Vikas Agarwal said that the OnePlus 8 series will be available in the Indian market later this month.
OnePlus launched the OnePlus 8 series in the US and Europe last month. Thus, the OnePlus 8 series is already available for customers to purchase. However, this is not the case in India, because of the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the country is still blocked nationwide. Now, India is gradually opening up the economy by relaxing some locking rules. And OnePlus is optimistic that it will eventually be able to launch its latest flagship smartphone in India.
‘We have resumed operations at the Noida plant last week in accordance with health and safety regulations established by the government,’ Vikas Agarwal added.
The OnePlus India general manager also confirmed that the company has resumed customer service center operations in 18 cities.
