Pre-Book Your OnePlus 8T 5G
Pre-bookings for the latest OnePlus device commenced on September 25 and will go on until October 16, 2020 at all OnePlus exclusive stores. Pre-booking can be done by paying Rs 2000 and those who pre-book will get the device first.
OnePlus phones tend to get sold out within minutes of their launch. Just last year, the launch tickets for OnePlus 7T were, in fact, sold out within seventy seconds last year. Thus, pre-booking is certainly a smart strategy to ensure that you get your hands on the device as soon as it hits the market.
