After the launch of OnePlus Two, OnePlus comes back on the stage with a new smartphone, OnePlus X. OnePlus X is the younger sibling of OnePlus Two i.e. its mini version that comes at a very affordable price. Let’s see what OnePlus X has to offer!
OnePlus X comes in two variants, Onyx Glass and Ceramic Limited Edition. The Ceramic variant will be available in Europe only, and there will be only 10.000 of these. According to OnePlus, the ceramic is very demanding to make and that’s why it will be only available in such small number.
OnePlus X Specs
When it comes to the specifications, the OnePlus X is very similar to the OnePlus Two. The screen is slightly smaller – 5” full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) in comparison to the 5.5” of the OnePlus X. It uses a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. The rear camera is an awesome 13-megapixel camera with flash, and the front – 8-megapixel. OnePlus X has 3GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage. The cool part about this phone is that it has a slot for external microSD card. However, the even cooler part is that the same slot can be used as a micro SIM card slot. So basically, the OnePlus X is a double-sim card phone.
The software the OnePlus X uses is the Android-based OxygenOS. Besides the light theme option, it also comes with a dark theme variant, which can help you save some battery. You can customize the buttons to your liking, and also use different gestures.
Probably the only thing I don’t like about this phone is the glass back that obliviously is a fingerprint magnet. Yes, it looks really good but it’s not very practical to wipe your phone every time you use it.
Availability of OnePlus X
The OnePlus X is available starting November 5th in Europe, and November 19th in the United States. The Onyx Variant costs $249 and the Ceramic one 369 eur. And of course, the famous invite system of OnePlus will be present. The invites will be given out in the first month, but after that, according to OnePlus there will be chances to buy the phone without an invite.
Some time ago, you wouldn’t get a decent smartphone for such a low price. The OnePlus X is an amazing phone within this price range, with features that can be found in the most expensive phones on the market now. If you get a chance to wrap your hands around one of these, don’t even think twice!
