One of most awaited device from OnePlus finally announced at the company's launch event in London following weeks of leaks, teases, and speculation. OnePlus unveiled the two variants of the OnePlus X - Onyx & Ceramic. As their names imply, each phone is made from a different material, with the Onyx using black glass on a metal bezel, while the Ceramic is made out of, well, ceramic, which OnePlus says is fire-baked at up to 2,700o F for more than 28 hours before being cooled for two days.
Apart from 2525 mAh LiPo battery both phones feature a 13MP rear-facing camera, claims to be company's “fastest camera yet”, as its phase detection autofocus can snap onto subjects in just 0.2 seconds and 8MP front-shooter with beauty mode support so you can airbrush your selfies.
As for the operating system, the OnePlus X use the company's Oxygen OS based on Android 5.1.1, just like the OnePlus 2. It will also take advantage of each phone's AMOLED panels by introducing an ambient display which will wake in what OnePlus is calling 'duochrome mode' to alert you to notifications. There will also be a proximity sensor that can wake the screen automatically when you take it out of your bag or pocket. The OnePlus X has two nano SIM card slots, one of which doubles up as a microSD card slot which can take cards up to 128GB. Equipped with 3 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory the device runs on a 32-bit 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and sports a 5 inch AMOLED full HD display.
