IMG_20151029_56496Will OnePlus manage to impress with their new phone?

OnePlus has officially announced the newest member of their smartphone family, the OnePlus X. The new phone tries to combine a spiffy exterior, somewhat aged hardware and compelling price point in a phone that’s supposed to compliment their OnePlus Two.

OnePlus X Specs

  • 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB internal memory expandable via 128 microSD
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Dual-SIM, Single SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, OxygenOS
  • 2525mAh battery

The OnePlus X will come in two variants: Onyx which is the regular glass on metal frame, and ceramic. The ceramic variant is interesting because the company says it’s scratch resistant, scoring 8.5 hardness in the MOH scale.

The Onyx  version of the OnePlus X will retail for around $249, or Php 11.7K. There’s no price for the new ceramic version, though both phones will still require an invite to purchase.

    Do you mean…?

    1. They’re offering a chipset that was used for previous flagship phones for an affordable price. Di mo rin naman mararamdaman ang kaibahan ng octacore sa quad core kung optimized ang software. Sa battery, hindi naman lahat ng tao e 24/7 hawak ang phones. May mga taong 8 to 5pm ang work kaya malaki na ang 2500mah para sa kanila. Saka ka na magreklamo pag hawak mo na ang handset.

    It’s Mohs scale…

  3. Hi I’m interested to the said product, would like to know if it is available in the Philippines ??
    and for those filipino users po, maganda po ba xa ? or ok naman po ba ang One Plus X ??

    salamat :)
