Reserved invites for the OnePlus X can be claimed in the U.S. and Canada
You can also try to win a OnePlus X, or one of 1000 invites being given away by OnePlus, in a contest that we told you all about earlier today. Besides the contest, there are other ways to land a invite. You can try to brown nose someone who just purchased the phone. OnePlus X buyers get invitations to hand out, so if you get in good with a buyer, perhaps he or she will give you one. You can also be a constant presence on OnePlus' forums and be rewarded with an invitation, or attend one of the pop-up shows that are held from time-to-time.
The OnePlus X is not for the specs junkies, like the other OnePlus models are. This phone is for the guy who wants to hold the model that everyone in a crowd is gravitating to, asking, "Hey bro, what phone is that?" The OnePlus X features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch AMOLED screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 801 SoC is under the hood, with a quad-core 2.3GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD is available to those seeking additional memory.
A 13MP rear-facing snapper offers an aperture of f/2.2, and there is a front-facing 8MP camera for selfies and video chats. A 2525mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. The phone will be receiving Android 6.0 eventually.
So if you've reserved your invitation in the U.S. and Canada, better claim it now. If the OnePlus X being held for you doesn't ends up in your hands soon, you'll have to wait at least a month before you get another crack at it.
