OnePlus X officially unveiled
Last year, OnePlus made a strong entrance onto the mobile market with its very well received OnePlus One model followed by an, arguably, a bit disappointing OnePlus Two. Today, the Chinese smartphone maker unveiled its third handset, the OnePlus X.
The device is beautifully built, with glass front and back and an anodized metal frame between them. It comes with a 5-inch Active Matrix OLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution (which translates to pixel density of 441 ppi) with Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Under, the hood, works a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, clocked at 2.3 GHz. It's supported by 3 GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU.
There's only 16 GB of storage space on board (part of which is taken by the operating system) but users can expande the flash memory up to 128 GB via a micro-SD card reader, which can also be used as a second Nano SIM slot. In this scenario, the storage space will be limited to the built-in 16 GB. The OnePlus X features a 13 MP main camera with f/2.2 lens and 0.2 second autofocus with phase detection. The front-faced camera uses an 8 MP sensor. The new handset runs the OxygenOS, based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The OnePlus X will be available in the US starting November 19 at $249. In Europe, the handset will hit the shelves on November 5th, but the price will be a bit higher, at EUR 269.
