OnePlus X officially unveiled: good-looking $250 smartphone
The OnePlus X has officially been unveiled in London clad in a metal frame glass front and back, sleek, smaller, cheaper and more angular compared to other previous models, carrying a smaller battery overall designed for its outlook and appearance.
The 5-inches Full-HD AMOLED display device runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset from 2013, has four cores which have been clocked at 2.6GHz and a battery of 2525mAh. The device houses a 3GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB using the microSD card, a microSD slot, and 13MP rear-facing camera while the front panel boasts of an 8MP snapper with the Wi-Fi 801 b/g/n for connectivity.
The device supports two SIM cards and features the same alert slider pioneered on the OnePlus 2 that allows the user switch between three notification profiles all without taking the phone out of the pocket. Although the device is incapable of recording 4K videos with its 13MP camera and lacks the home button which makes the option of fingerprint scanning and recognition impossible, it runs Oxygen OS 5.1 based on the Android 5.1 OS.
The smaller design makes the device more of a smartphone with option of a glass version weighing 138g and the ceramic version weighing about 160g. The device comes in Onyx and Ceramic colours and is expected to be on sale starting from November 5, the porcelain version which will be in limited release to come much later.
