OnePlus 6T Preorder: Accidental Leak!
Yesterday evening, few news portals such as MySmartPrice and others reported how a new ‘deal’ from Amazon India: Preorder OnePlus 6T by paying Rs 1000, and get free Type-C earphones and Rs 500 worth of Amazon Pay Balance.

However, now this deal has been removed, which proves that it was an accidental leak of the offer, which can be announced later.
