After several speculations and rumors, OnePlus has finally revealed the Oneplus X at New Delhi. OnePlus would really be expecting the same type of response which it got earlier from the previous flagship-level devices. With the recent release, we can clearly see that the company is focusing more on the style also we can see foreshadow of iPhone 4 and 5 in the designs of OnePlus X.
Once again the company will be using invite system to manage customer demand and specifications, it’s been announced that there will be 2 models: The Onyx which will have black glass on the back and will be retailed at $249 (INR 16,999) and a ceramic version, which is going to be priced around $350 (INR 22,999)but it won’t be retailed in the US infact company is only making 10,000 Ceramic versions so you will have to be quick if you want to grab that piece.
Coming towards the specifications and features, OnePlus X features a 5-inch Full HD AMOLED with snapdragon 801 processor, which was also used to power the 2014 flagship phones Sony Xperia Z3 and LG G3. It’s also has 3GB of RAM, a 2525 mAh battery and slot for 2 SIMS. For internal space, it’s loaded with 16GB of on-board storage, which is backed up with MicroSD support up to 128 GB. Talking about the camera you can click images with 13 MP primary camera but no 4K video recording supported and the front is loaded with 8MP snapper.
We can easily see that company has made a few compromises though, like it has no physical home button, so you can forget about fingerprint recognition and you can’t expect device to get charged via USB-C cable as like Oneplus 2 it just has the normal micro-USB charging slot. Other normal features include 2G, 3G, 3.5 mm jack, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
With these we can easily conclude that OnePlus X is not a replacement of OnePlus 2 or 1 besides, it’s a new era for users who are happy to sacrifice a little for a killer flagship replica. The Oneplus X is fairly a handset targeted to mid ranged users. The device is set to launch on November 5th and we can expect deliveries to faster after the setup of a manufacturing plant in India.
