OnePlus announces the new OnePlus X months after the OnePlus 2 release

After the co-founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei tweeted about a successor to the already recent OnePlus 2 being released later this year, speculation among forum users began.

The fact that OnePlus was announcing a new and probably better spec’d phone started worrying some users, given that the OnePlus 2 had only been out for a couple of days. Today, after about three months, we finally have the full spec sheet and even images of the future mid-range phone, thanks to OnePlus.

The phone is packing a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801-processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, a Qualcomm Adreno 330, 3 GB of LPDDR3, a micro-SDcard slot giving you up to 128 GB of expandable memory, a 2525 mAh LiPro battery, a 5 inch Full HD AMOLED screen, Dual-SIM capabilities, Alert Slider, a 13 MP back- facing camera, a 8 MP front-facing camera, micro-USB, and strangely enough, a Wi-fi antenna only capable of 2.4 GHz connectivity.

Although I do think that the OnePlus X is, in some aspects, better than the OnePlus 2, like for example the type of screen technology chosen, the option for expandable storage and a higher resolution front-facing camera, it still makes the purchase of the OnePlus 2 completely worth it.

The price tag on the OnePlus X is obviously lower taking into account the lack of fingerprint reader, older generation RAM type, the downgraded Wi-Fi antenna, and the lack of USB-C, but it’s still a great product at a really great price for those who want a powerful yet relatively low-priced phone.

OnePlus has not revealed the price of the OnePlus X yet but if you are interested in when and how much it will cost, you check out their page.
