However, the company hasn’t revealed the price of its Warp Charge 30 wireless charging dock yet. Additionally, no information has been shared regarding when the products will go on their first sale in India. With the current restrictions in place due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the government hasn’t allowed e-commerce companies to deliver non-essential goods such as mobile phones and laptops. Therefore, it could take a while for the OnePlus 8 phones to go on sale but the current lockdown lifts only on May 3, so we’ll have to wait to find out the exact dates of sale.
