[Rumour] 5-Inch OnePlus X to feature Snapdragon 801, launch in October
Some news regarding everyone’s favourite startup, OnePlus, is that it is apparently planning on announcing a new model called the OnePlus X. It could be unveiled during October, and appears to have some interesting hardware choices.
According to an unnamed source of GizmoChina’s, the OnePlus X will sport a Snapdragon 801 processor, like the original OnePlus One used. It will also have a 5-inch display, which should please people who aren’t fans of the 5.5-inch handsets that are all the rage at the moment. A fingerprint sensor is believed to be present on the rear of the device while dual cameras are also thought to feature.
Design-wise, the source said that OnePlus has moved on from the OnePlus 2 design, instead attempting to make the OnePlus X more beautiful. It’s unknown whether the render above, courtesy of GizmoChina, is indicative of the final design or not.
Finally, the OnePlus X is believed to be launched around the $249 price point, squarely aimed at the budget-conscious mid-range market. While there may be some eyebrows raised at OnePlus choosing to go with the venerable Snapdragon 801 processor, it has to be said that it’s a proven chipset, as well as being a cooler, cheaper alternative to the much maligned Snapdragon 810.
Is it going to be a case of third-time-lucky for OnePlus? Will it get the launch of the OnePlus X right? Or will it follow the all-too-familiar path of a handset being launched, and then issuing apologies for delays a few weeks afterwards?
Only time will tell. In the meantime though, what do you think of the decision to use the Snapdragon 801 in the OnePlus X?
