New OnePlus X teaser hints at October 29th unveiling in India
The OnePlus X has been characterized by co-founder Carl Pei, as a device for those who care more about design than specs. This apparently will be one handset that favors form over function. We expect the unit to feature a 5-inch screen, and carry a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. Under the hood we might find the MediaTek 6795 SoC, along with its octa-core CPU. Another possibility is the graybeard Snapdragon 801 chipset, which features a quad-core CPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with a 2450mAh cell.
The rear-facing camera is expected to be 13MP, with an 8MP snapper up front to shoot selfies and handle video chats. The OnePlus 2 didn't have NFC, but the OnePlus X will, according to earlier leaks. And the phone does support 4G LTE connectivity.
No word yet on availability. Some earlier rumors had the phone priced in the vicinity of $249 USD. We will find out all of the pertinent information when the OnePlus X is officially introduced to the world, and that looks like it will happen on October 29th.
Thanks for the tip!
