OnePlus is back with a new phone, “OnePlus X,” a smaller version of OnePlus One. A smartphone that the company announced while launching OnePlus Two is now official. Let us have a look at its specs and how to buy this latest phone from one of the most-loved brands.
If you haven’t been comfortable with 5.5-inch screens of OnePlus phones, here comes the good news. OnePlus X is a 5-inch phone with 1080p full HD, 441 PPI display. Just like OnePlus One, the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Listed below are some of the other key specs.
Camera: 13MP primary; 8MP front camera
OS: OxygenOS / Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.3 GHz Quad-core CPUs
Storage: 16GB eMMC v5.0
microSD card: Yes, up to 128GB expandable memory
RAM: 3GB LPDDR3
GPU: Qualcomm Adreno 330
OnePlus X comes with 2 slots, either for 2 Nano SIM cards, or 1 Nano SIM and 1 microSD card. This latest smartphone from OnePlus will also give you two color options – Ceramic and Onyx. If the specifications are compared, OnePlus X is not much different from OnePlus One. The screen has become smaller and the battery has been scaled down. Whereas OnePlus One had a powerful 3100 mAh Li-Po battery, this new Android device has 2,525 mAh LiPo battery.
In the U.S., the phone will be made available on November 11. It will cost you $249. In Europe, it will be launched on November 5 for 269 EUR.
How to buy OnePlus X
To buy OnePlus X, you need to sign up for an invite from the website. Another way is to ask your friend who has already placed an order to send you an invite, and once you place your order, you can do this favor for someone else. European customers will be able to pre-order Onyx from November 5 and Ceramic from November 24 as soon as the company sends out an invite. The dates for U.S. customers have not yet been announced.
