As per recent reports, we can expect the smartphone to unveil on 29th October 2015.
OnePlus top executive Liu Zuohu has posted a teaser image on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter Weibo page confirming that the new smartphone from Oneplus is going to be known as the OnePlus X. Earlier was called as the OnePlus Mini.
Oneplus X launch is just 2 days away, and the first image for the smartphone has surfaced on the internet.
The smartphone is expected to launch on 29 October 2015 as per the recent information. Here is a picture shared by the OnePlus team.
The new smartphone was expected to get unveiled in India on 12 October earlier, but there came surprising news from the Oneplus team instead of launching the smartphone. They have shared that they will be part of made in India campaign. It is indeed great news.
OnePlus is also having an open sale on Amazon India today and tomorrow for the OnePlus two those who wish to grab the OnePlus two this is the right opportunity. The sale on 12 October will start at 12:00 PM Indian time, and on 13 October it starts in the morning at 8:00 am.
As was hinted by Carl Pie the co-founder and CEO of OnePlus back in August that they will be launching another smartphone this year. The smartphone is also allegedly called as the OnePlus X after we have seen Google launch the Google Nexus 5X, we are finally seeing manufacturers dropping the S suffix and moving to the “X” ending.

The Smartphone has a similar design like the OnePlus 2 but do have some differentiating design factors.
For example, we have a fingerprint scanner on the front home button on the Oneplus 2 while the One plus X likely to have the fingerprint scanner at the back.
There are 2 Dual Camera’s at the back like we have earlier seen on the HTC M8 or the Huawei Honor Plus which help in clicking the image and at the same time adding DSLR type blur background effects and focus on the subject.
The rear camera is expected to be 13 megapixels while the front camera is going to be 5 Megapixels for the smartphone.
The smartphone is going to be approx 5.0 inch in size. The One Plus 2, on the other hand, has a 5.5-inch screen.
If you notice the above image of OnePlus X carefully, you will see a large speaker grill at the bottom, and there is likely a USB type C port for charging the smartphone.
Design and Display
The front panel looks very neat and plain as the predecessors. The back panel has a matte finish, looks like it is made of polyplastic and there is a metallic edge frame to add to the looks of the smartphone.
We expect that the screen on the OnePlus X will also be a Full HD (1920*1080) resolution display offering 443 PPI. The full HD display is getting common these days, and most smartphones below 15K are also coming with the high definition screen. So it is quite likely OnePlus X will not miss on that.
The smartphone is going to be mid range was confirmed by Carl Pie back in August, they are not looking for a successor to OnePlus 2 at this stage.
We can expect the new smartphone to pack great hardware but will not have the flagship engines that power the One Plus 2.
Performance and Hardware
At best the smartphone can be powered with the new processor from MediaTek’s MT6795 SoC, clocked at 2.2 GHz with 4G LTE capability.
Ram can range anywhere between the 2 GB and the 3 GB version, most likely should get a 2 GB version.
It can come in 2 variants which seems quite likely going by what Oneplus has done in the past a 16/32 GB offered at two affordable price points.
The OnePlus X will come with the latest Android Version the Android 6.0 marshmallow. Besides, the smartphone is expected to have a 3000 mAH battery capacity and also will have a similar USB type C port like it’s elder brother.
The smartphone will have 4G LTE Support along with the native 3G and 2G data connectivity.

OnePlus is likely to unveil the smartphone in October 2015 and we may the orders starting around Diwali, that is mid-November.
You may be able to get the OnePlus X for Diwali and definitely will get it for Christmas even if there is a supply constraint.
We expect the price for the OnePlus X at 249$/299$ for different storage size variants.
