After releasing the OnePlus 2 flagship, OnePlus has said that this won’t be the only smartphone they’ll announce this year. The company has said that the second phone will arrive before the end of the year, and it seems like that will happen on October 29th. The company has already teased this event via social media and has included a huge letter ‘X’ in their teaser. This actually suggests that the OnePlus X smartphone, which was rumored and leaked intensively over the last few weeks, will be announced at said event.
The OnePlus X has been certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) quite recently, and the phone has also surfaced on OppoMart (China’s reseller) as well. Thanks to those two listings, we were able to find out which specifications will this smartphone sport, and we’ll talk about those in a minute. Let’s first tackle the newly leaked news, shall we. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see the alleged OnePlus X smartphone in the flesh. As you can see two variants of the phone are showcased, the black and white image. It seems like the device will sport glass on both its front and back side, and you also get to see the metallic trim which goes around the device, along with the rear-facing OnePlus logo. It seems like the loudspeaker will be located on the bottom of the device along with a Type-C port which will be placed in between speaker grills.
According to the recently surfaced listings, the OnePlus X will feature a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core SoC along with an Adreno 330 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel shooter will be available on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be placed up front. The device will offer 4G LTE connectivity, of course, and according to the latest leaks, it might cost around $220 in China. The 2,450mAh battery has also been mentioned, and you can expect the phone to ship with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS with OnePlus’ OxygenOS available on top of it. The device will measures 140 x 69 x 6.9mm, while it will weight 138 grams.
UPDATE: It turns out that at least the first image is fake. This is a photoshopped image of the Vivo X5 (third image in the gallery down below).
