For the many who follow the latest smartphone news, OnePlus will need no introduction. Although, a number of Chinese manufacturers have been making big waves over the last couple of years, OnePlus is a company which is somewhat unique and has already served up two popular devices that are available to buy unlocked. Last month, OnePlus unveiled the latest in their growing range of unlocked devices, in the form of the OnePlus X. A device which builds on the traits which made the previous options so popular, but comes with an even more affordable price.
In terms of the specs, the OnePlus X comes in a smaller size than the previous two OnePlus devices and offers a 5-inch display, which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the OnePlus X comes sporting 3GB RAM and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (clocking at 2.3 GHz). In terms of storage, the OnePlus X is available in two size formats, and here we have the 16GB model. Although, this does come with a microSD card slot offering further expansion when needed. Moving to the camera side of things and the OnePlus X comes loaded with a 13-megapixel rear camera, which is coupled with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The OnePlus X does offer a number of additional features which include dual-SIM, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and comes powered by a 2450 mAh battery. The operating system on offer is the OnePlus homegrown OS, Oxygen OS, with the most up to date version, based on Android 5.1. This is a device which supports 4G LTE and in terms of the band compatibility, the OnePlus X works with 2G (GSM) 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G (WCDMA) 850/900/1900/2100 MHz and 4G (FDD-LTE) 1800/2100/2600 MHz.
As well as offering good devices at good prices, OnePlus are also known for making sustained use of invites to purchase their devices. The OnePlus X is no exception. As such, you do need to pick up an invite to buy the OnePlus X. That said, the device is available to buy without an invite from GearBest and via this route, you can pick up the OnePlus X for only $287.69. This is slightly higher than the 'invite price', however, you do not have to wait for the invite to purchase.
