New Delhi: We’ve been hearing rumours about the OnePlus 8T 5G launching in India for a while now and guess what happened today, OnePlus 8T launch in India has been teased through Amazon and OnePlus.in. In a major development, OnePlus took to its Twitter handle to tease the upcoming device, and then later partnered with Amazon to list it on the platform ahead of the device’s launch. The new OnePlus phone was originally speculated to launch in the country later this month, though a recent report suggested its debut for October 14.

Amazon has created a microsite for the OnePlus 8T that carries a “coming soon” tag. A contest has also been conducted by the online marketplace to give users a chance to win the OnePlus 8T phone. It is interesting to note that the OnePlus 8T’s promotions have only gone live in India, hinting that the phone could first launch in India and then be announced in global markets at a later date.
