OnePlus X Specs, Features, News, Price And Release Date
OnePlus had indicated they’re going to launch two phones this year a long time ago. The new flagship, OnePlus Two, already arrived to a somewhat mixed response. There was talk, however, of OnePlus launching a new mid-range phone around Christmas – often called the OnePlus Mini in speculations. That phone is now all but confirmed as the OnePlus X.
In a filing for the FCC – the Federal Communications Commission of America, whose standards and checks all phones have to pass – the details of OnePlus’ new handset have been revealed. A file photo is included, which reveals a device with a OnePlus logo at the back, but smaller than the OnePlus 2. There are also two audio speakers on the bottom, and a USB Type-C port. The camera is also placed to the left side, unlike the OnePlus 2’s centered camera – this looks more like the Nexus 4. There is no image of the front of the device, and many other details have been made confidential, but there are enough rumours going around as to what exactly the specifications of this mid-range effort from OnePlus might be.
The OnePlus X is believed to be powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T). The Helio X10 is MediaTek’s most powerful SoC yet, which can go toe-to-toe with other flagship SoC’s like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and Samsung’s Exynos 7420. It also features a 5 inch screen as opposed to the OnePlus Two’s 5.5-inch, 2GB of RAM as opposed to the 3/4GB offered in the OnePlus Two, a 13 MP back camera with a Sony IMX258 sensor and an f/2.0 aperture, a 5 MP front camera, and a 3000mAh battery.

The phone’s name isn’t officially announced yet. However, various things have been hinting at it being OnePlus X for a while. Recently, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau posted a what appears to be a running route around the city, but makes the shape of an X. While some are arguing that this has no significance, some sources do say that it is indeed viral marketing and hyper generation for his next phone – the OnePlus X.
Pricing and release details aren’t available yet for the OnePlus X, Mini, or whatever OnePlus ends up calling it. However, we may safely assume it to be quite a bit lower than the OnePlus 2 priced at Rs.25,000.
