Description

The external appearance is undoubtedly one of the main selling points for the new OnePlus X. The phone will be offered in two versions - Onyx and a limited Ceramic edition. The phone has a 5-inch display with 1080p resolution and 441ppi. The real eyebrow-raiser with the OnePlus X is its quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset. Not that this silicon is not powerful enough to run the new Oxygen interface on top of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but it is somewhat aging in the sense that it is not a 64-bit endeavor. Other than that, OnePlus equipped the X with a generous 3 GB RAM amount, and 16 GB of storage, expandable via a microSD card, the slot for which is housed in the dual SIM card tray, so it's either two nano SIMs, or one SIM and one memory card, bummer. The OnePlus X comes with a 13 MP rear camera, and a hearty 8 MP selfie-taker.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 441 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Regulatory Approval

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
