A couple of hours ago, we told you that OnePlus is going to launch the OnePlus 6 on May 17 in China. At that time, there was no word on whether OnePlus would launch the OnePlus 6 in India on the same day or before or after the China launch. Well, OnePlus has finally put an end to all the speculations and rumors surrounding the launch of OnePlus 6 in India, as the company has announced that the OnePlus 6 will be launched in India on May 17, the same day it’s launched in China.

The OnePlus 6 will be launched in India at an event held at the Dome at NSCI in Mumbai. The launch event will kick-off at 3 pm Indian time. And, like last year, this event will not only be restricted to media, but will be open to OnePlus fans as well.
