Back in March, OnePlus revealed that, in addition to its new flagship - which would later be released as the '2' - it was also working on another device. Its CEO, Carl Pei, said at the time: "I think it's going to be a phone catering to a different type of audience. Perhaps for those who appreciate design over specs."
Today, the company unveiled that device - the OnePlus X - calling it "a design centric device chic and powerful enough to fit any lifestyle" [sic].
OnePlus is focusing heavily on the design of the device, even referring to it as "a work of art". The X will be available in two versions; the first is known as 'Onyx', with black glass and a metal bezel. The company says that "every glass backplate is cut to size and polished repeatedly until it achieves a smooth, glossy, mirror-like finish."
Under the hood, the OnePlus X doesn't quite match the specs of the latest range-topping flagships, but it's still got plenty to offer, including:
- 5-inch AMOLED with Full HD (1920x1080px) display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- Quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 16GB onboard storage (plus microSD card support up to 128GB)
- 13MP rear camera with 1080p video recording and slow-motion 720p video capture at 120fps
- 8MP front-facing camera
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Dual nanoSIM
- Oxygen OS (based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop)
- 140 x 69 x 6.9mm; 138g (Onyx), 160g (Ceramic)
