Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is all set to make a major announcement on October 29 at its OnePlus conference, which will be held in India, London, Jakarta and Beijing, among other countrues. OnePlus is tight-lipped about the announcement, but a press-invite for the event pretty much confirms what the tech press has been buzzing about for a few months now: a brand new phone called the OnePlus X.
The OnePlus X is expected to be a smaller phone than the current OnePlus 2 with a screen size of 5 inches. According to a leaked promotional image, the phone will cost CNY 1699 (Roughly Rs. 17,500). However, an earlier leak had suggested that the OnePlus X may come with a price tag of CNY 1,399 (roughly rs. 14,500).
This is essentially OnePlus’ budget play. The company’s flagship device, the OnePlus Two, costs Rs. 25,000 in India.
Based on previous leaks, the OnePlus X will featuer a 5-inch full HD IPS display (1080 x 1920 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processer, 3 GB RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera, and dual-SIM cards.
