Whereas almost since the launch of the first phone brand, says “OnePlus Mini” is now official. A smartphone OxygenOS like OnePlus 2, and characteristics making largely reminiscent of a One dating from 2014.
It is now an OnePlus X a bit more compact than the OnePlus 2 announces OnePlus. The Chinese brand, the last product has been surrounded by many rumors, chose London to formalize, since the device will be available in Europe before landing on US soil.
As expected, therefore, that OnePlus X put on a reduced format of 140 × 69 × 6.9 mm to 138 grams, which has a 5-inch screen. Point IPS or delusional definitions here, since the brand has opted for an AMOLED panel (decimate very fashionable right now) Full HD, integrated with a case involving a metal frame and a back polished glass. Its screen is covered in Gorilla Glass 3 against scratches and found the little “slider” button on the side dedicated to the rapid change in the notification mode.
Under the hood, the smartphone features not a MediaTek Helio X10 a time considered, but a Snapdragon 801 SoC, almost like in the OnePlus One, since it will likely be dealing with his version AB (clocked at 2.3GHz) and Non AC (2.5 GHz). The chip is coupled with a good amount of RAM, 3 GB of LPDDR3, alongside a 16GB storage space and good news can be expanded via a micro SD card. Recall that OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 are satisfied with a non-expandable memory, the latest model is also available in its 64 GB version.
The characteristics of OnePlus X, for the rest, seem of good quality. It notably includes a photo sensor Isocell (Samsung) 13 megapixels, with an aperture of f/2.2 and a phase detect autofocus, front camera of 8 megapixels, a correct battery 2525 mAh, and WiFi 2.4 GHz without support 5 GHz. However, and this is a good news OnePlus X supports all bands hexagonal 4G frequencies, namely 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz. It also runs under OxygenOS, based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, like its predecessor, but is silent on the fingerprint reader and port USB type-C that is found there. It includes some gestures to facilitate its use, as well as a feature “Ambient Display” displaying black and white notices on their receipt, to Motorola.
The OnePlus X “Onyx” will be released by November 5, priced at 269 euros, still on the site OnePlus. It will unfortunately be patient, since the Chinese company has not yet finished with its invitation system, which will be applied to its new model.
The device will be available in a second version; the hull will be this time ceramic, a very strong and scratch resistant material. This model, designed as a limited edition of 10,000 copies, will be available from November 24 and 369 euros in Asia and Europe only. The US sufferer until November 19 to access the OnePlus X standard, and should never get to see his counterpart Ceramic.
