The newest addition to the OnePlus family, the OnePlus X, has had relatively little so far in the way of full, extensive leaks. That changed recently when some promotional images made it into the wild touting a mostly full feature set and a price that seems fairly spot-on.
The newest member of the OnePlus stable is already alleged to sport Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, a 5″ 1920×1080 display, along with 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM, either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or some variant of Mediatek processor, a healthy 13-megapixel rear camera paired with a selfie snapper of either 5 megapixels or 8, and a 2,450 mAh battery to keep the show running. This leak pretty much confirms some of these details, but also manages to reveal pricing and what seems to be the final design.
The price tag is touted as 1699 Yuan, or about $267 USD, making it their cheapest device yet. It is unknown which storage variant this will be for, as there seem to be two versions; one with 16GB internal storage and another with 32GB. Both come with a MicroSD slot made to accept up to 128GB cards. The design is revealed to be a luxurious, but somewhat plain affair, a rectangular black slab with a silver lining that may be aluminum or plastic. The back looks to be smooth, either aluminum or glossy plastic as well. Given the somewhat small price tag, it’s an easy assumption to make that these parts are plastic. Nothing was shown as to whether or not the back was removable, so it’s also an easy assumption that the battery is meant to stay put, allowing SIM and MicroSD access from the sides.
Among the previously suspected specs that have been confirmed, we only have the Android version, 5.1.1 Lollipop, the processor, which will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, the RAM, which will be 3GB, and the storage, which will be a 16GB variant or a 32GB variant with the only slightly surprising addition of a MicroSD slot. A camera sample was leaked, showing fairly good quality, but a megapixel count was not given. This basically puts the device in line with the flagships of 2014 such as the LG G3, Sony Xperia Z3 and the company’s own OnePlus One, but at a much lower price point, more than low enough to compete with even the well-priced Mediatek-carrying Chinese powerhouses such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2.
