OnePlus to launch flagship 8 series both online and offline


Beijing, Feb 24 (IANS) Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus on Monday refuted reports that it has cancelled an offline event to showcase its upcoming OnePlus 8 flagship series owing to the coronavirus outbreak.

News portal GizmoChina last week quoted OnePlus CEO Pete Lau as stating on Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo that due to coronavirus outbreak, the company will not be able to host an offline launch event and unveil the upcoming OnePlus 8 series only through an online livestream event.

A company spokesperson told IANS that the report is inaccurate.

“Reports of cancelling on offline launch event due to coronavirus are false. OnePlus has a history of hosting online and offline events, globally,” said the spokesperson.

    OnePlus After service is very bad. You may need to replace the whole Mother Board for Battery Backup. I am facing this issue. My phone working fine but I need to replace board due to low battery backup.
