After months of speculation and confusion about a trimmed down version of OnePlus 2, the OnePlus X is finally official. Much anticipated OnePlus X is the second OnePlus device to debut in 2015. The device will go on sale in India, China, Indonesia and England. OnePlus has once again trusted Amazon India as its exclusive online sales partner, and will continue to sale its devices through its invite system.
The new OnePlus X will be available in two different variants, with OnePlus X Onyx premium version flaunting glass and metal and there is a different feel ceramic version too. To some extent its design resembles iPhone with its metal frame, similar placement of back camera, but in 2015 that seems like a waste of breadth. The alert slide in OnePlus 2 has made the cut for the X and that’s a good thing. This is also the first OnePlus device with MicroSD card and FM radio.
The handset includes a 5 Inch Full HD display along with curved 2.5D glass shield. Moto and Nexus like Ambient display is also present to quickly glance at notifications. It is the most compact device delivered by OnePlus in its 2 year long journey. The screen to body ration is impressive as it has minimum bezel around display.
