Two weeks ago we speculated about launch of OnePlus X, and we have been proved right as Chinese startup OnePlus finally announced the launch of OnePlus X on Thursday. The device is a mid-ranger with quite an impressive list of hardware specification, which competitors will find very difficult to exceed given the starting price of $249 (Rs. 16,999 in India).
More interestingly, OnePlus also has plans to start manufacturing its OnePlus X Onyx in Andhra Pradesh, India starting December this year in partnership with Foxconn.
OnePlus X will be available in two variants – one with glass “onyx” back and another limited edition with ceramic back. As of now, OnePlus’s Indian manufacturing facility will only produce the “onyx” variant from December. In India, the OnePlus X Onyx and Limited Ceramic edition are priced at Rs. 16,999 and Rs. 22,999 respectively, and goes on sale via Amazon India website through invites-only model from next month.
OnePlus X Specifications and Features: The OnePlus X boasts of 5-inch AMOLED display from Samsung with full-HD (1080p) resolution. The outcome is a crisp and clear display, which offers pixel density of 441 ppi. The device is powered by a 32-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, but for the price you are paying it is still a very good deal and processor is fast by any standard. An Adreno 330 GPU is there to take care of graphics department.
Coming to the camera, the OnePlus X gets a 13-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL camera sensor, which means you will be getting a decent camera. Another 8-megapixel front-facing camera takes care of selfies and video chats.
The device has a decent 16GB of in-built storage, which could further be expanded via microSD cards. OnePlus X is a dual-SIM device, but you can either use two SIM slots for two networks, or use one slot for network and other slot for expanding memory by inserting microSD cards.
