As expected, during a press event hold by OnePlus today in China, we got to see their new smartphone device called OnePlus X. If the first two devices developed by OnePlus were somehow focused on offering the best hardware performance on the market, with the X-model we see a different approach, one focused more on design.
We can call OnePlus X the most attractive phone from OnePlus’s portfolio, and we’re not wrong at all. You must know for first that the new device comes in two different variants. There’s the Onyx one that brings a case with metallic frame and glass back, design saw several time this year on other products too.
The novelty is the Ceramic variant that packs a ceramic back cover that is scratch-resistant. In terms of dimensions, OnePlus X keeps a compact form factor with a 6.9 mm thin body that weighs just 138 grams.
Next in line is the hardware, and OnePlus X brings some pretty good specs. We get a 5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D Glass and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, panel with the Active Matrix OLED technology. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor is coupled with 3 GB of RAM memory, 16 GB space of internal storage + a microSD card slot.
This phone arrives with a 2525 mAh battery, with a 13-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL rear camera sensor that offers 1080p video recording, and a f/2.2 aperture. The front facing unit, is a 8-megapixel sensor that looks great for selfie lovers.
Another thing you should know is the price. Well, the Onyx variant of this device will cost you $249 if you live in US, or 269 euros if you’re from Europe. In Europe, OnePlus X will be available starting November 5th. If you’re going for the Ceramic variant, one limited at 10.000 units, you’ll have to pay 369 euros. Unfortunately, the invite system is again applied for this phone too.
