Rumor: OnePlus to launch a new phone this October, old flagship specs, shiny new design
Well, the latest leak, which allegedly comes from sources in partner factories, reveals that the phone would be dubbed the OnePlus X. And, instead of packing midranger hardware, it will have the flagship specs of yesteryear. Namely, the alleged OnePlus X, will rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 under its hood. Additionally, the leaksters said that the display diagonal would be 5", contrasting the phablet-class 5.5" size of the OnePlus 2.
As far as launch date goes, the leakster reiterated earlier rumors – the OnePlus X should be revealed some time this October. The rumored price-tag is $249 – quite alluring. Of course, whether the phone will be readily available, or sold through the infamous invite system is yet unknown. If we had to guess, we'd have to say that it will go through invites – same as any OnePlus handset.
