OnePlus recently announced two new entrants to its smartphone lineup- the OnePlus X Onyx and the OnePlus X Ceramic at prices of INR 16,999 and INR 22,999 respectively.
Let’s dive right into the specifications. The One Plus Xs start their story with a 5-inch AMOLED screen that packs 1920 x 1080 pixels. A Snapdragon 801 chip powers the phone, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of onboard storage(expandable via a microSD card up to 128GB). Android 5.1.1 is OnePlus’ OS of choice here(presumably including OnePlus’ custom OxygenOS) and the battery is a 2525 mAh unit.
The primary camera is a 13 MP isocell sensor with an f/2.2 aperture that includes Phase Detection Autofocus; which enables the X to lock on to focus in 0.2 seconds. An 8 MP camera resides upfront. The X also has support for dual-SIMs built in; while a fingerprint reader remains absent. The notification slider from the OnePlus Two has been thrown into the mix as well. The OnePlus X supports 4G LTE too.
The X, as OnePlus says, is made in India and will be sold exclusively on Amazon. OnePlus holds only 10,000 units of the Ceramic variant(the costlier one out of the two). With sales starting on the 5th of November, first month’s sales will be on an invite-only basis. Meanwhile, the OnePlus One will be discontinued sometime next year.Both phones are 6.9mm thin; the Onyx variant being lighter than the Ceramic one- 138g vs 160g.
Apart from the new phones, OnePlus also debuted a new pair of earphones called the OnePlus Icons. The Icons will be available in Gold and Graphite colours; and are based on 11mm drivers which, in a blind test, sounded extremely high in quality. While prices haven’t been revealed yet, OnePlus say they’d price the Icons for ‘much less than you imagine’.
