Teaser posted on Weibo by OnePlus executive confirms the OnePlus X name for the company's next phone

The third OnePlus handset, the one that co-founder Carl Pei said would be out around Christmas, has been dubbed the OnePlus X. Now, a teaser found on the Weibo page of company CEO Liu Zuohu seems to confirm the name. The teaser shows a screenshot of a map, with four lines converging to form an "X." While not an official proclamation, it would seem to be a pretty good indication that the name of the new phone has already been leaked.

This is the OnePlus handset that Carl Pei says is being made for those who buy a phone for design, rather than specs. Speaking of specs, the latest rumored ones for the OnePlus X include a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6795 SoC, which carries a 64-bit octa-core 2.2GHz CPU and a 700 MHz PowerVR G6200 GPU. 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable storage.

The rear camera weighs in at 13MP, includes a Sony IMX258 sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and shoots 4K video. The front-facing snapper is 5MP. A 3000-3100mAh battery is on board, and Android 5.1.1 or Android 6.0 will be pre-installed. Not only is the Type-C USB port included, but the phone does come with NFC. This, of course, was missing from the OnePlus 2. The phone is expected to be priced at $249.

Earlier today, invites were sent out for an October 12th media event in India, which will be attended by co-founder Pete Lau, and OnePlus India GM Vikas Agarwall. At that time, we could see the new OnePlus X unveiled. Despite the lower specs, we don't necessarily see this as a "mini" device. Instead, it just happens to be a stylish new model, like Carl Pei said, designed for those who favor form over function.

I'm glad people are finally getting this. A sensor is more than the number of pixels, and a camera is more than its sensor. I'd rather a great 12 MP sensor than a mediocre 21 MP. I'm taking photos, not billboards.

People have been getting this for years, but there will always just be people who see what they want to see.

What's bad about it? Take a look at the price my friend. f/2.0 aperture is pretty good anyway, just like 13 mp.

One plus X. Must be pretty advanced, they've gone from arithmetic to algebra.

Personally, I'm holding out for the OnePlus x dx.

You know that OnePlus is a company name so there will be always OnePlus "something".

Because they're rare. They're like xiaomi hyping up products thru the internet but don't have enough inventory for everybody waiting.

Moment of silence to the OnePlus Two owners...and also the 5.8 score by Chris "Flagship Killer" P.

I've got this weird feeling that One Plus will join htc and blackberry in the extinct race soon. Their unorganized invite system is always a marketing's nightmare for me.

A 5 inch screen for the Indian market where 5.5 inch is considered to be small?

How many names does this company plan on stealing from others? They stole One from HTC, Plus from Samsung & Apple, and X from Motorola. This company is a huge sham. One of the founders is begging to be an intern at Samsung.

Yeah the name should be A675y0cg54. Are you serious ?

Lol, no. This is just stupid in the first place, and the X does't come from Motorola anyway.

Anyone else remember when the Droid X was rumored to be called Droid Xtreme? Just me, eh?

one of the best things about oneplus devices is the modding community over at xda amazing roms and kernels the the different mods . but with MediaTek MT6795 SoC i really doubt there will be any greater development due the lack of source provided by mediatek
