OnePlus X price exposure, and it costs more than we expected


oneplus x price

OnePlus will hold an event on the 29th October for a new smartphone that is rumoured to be called the OnePlus X, and already pricing details have been exposed in China.

Xiaomi and Meizu are the 2 brands which are fighting over the 1000 Yuan phone market. Xiaomi has it’s Redmi range of phones while Meizu has the Meilan models. It’s a fierce battle and one we we expected OnePlus to be joining later this week, but price leaks now say that this isn’t the case.

New images shared on social networks in China today show the OnePlus X, the slim 2.5D glass OnePlus phone, with a retail price of 1699 Yuan which equals roughly $268, or slightly less expensive than the base version of the OnePlus 2.

If this pricing is accurate then it shows that OnePlus aren’t interested in the entry-level market at this time and are instead hoping to offer a phone aimed at design conscious buyers.

While the OnePlus 2 is made to be the flagship with all the latest bells and whistles, the X has its emphasis on design with a slim alloy body, glass front and rear and slender 5-inch screen.

OnePlus X/Mini Rumoured Specifications

Rumour has it that the OnePlus X (or OnePlus Mini) will actually feature specifications similar to the original OnePlus One. The screen will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, Qualcomm will provide the Snapdragon 801 running at 2.0Ghz,, and there will be 3GB RAM. Memory options will be 16GB or 32GB with the option to add an SD card while cameras will be an 8 mega-pixel front and 13 mega-pixel rear.

What do you make of the pricing? Are you ready for a OnePlus X in your life?

    #NeverSettle f+cked up completely. I do remember when founder of the OnePlus promised a best phones with best specs and design to change the industry. Now OPO is avarage phone maker with no style and lots of pointless hype around

    If you conside, that you can buy LG G Flex 2 for +- the same money (even in USA or Europe), it doesnt make any sense to buy this… I have Nubia Z7 mini and it costs me +-220 EURos one year ago…This has the same HW, but it costs even more…

      Could not agree more… OnePlus was a one trick pony. Pricing and Design are crap

      If Nubia had 800MHz LTE I would already get the Z9 mini. Unfortunately it doesn’t. LG G Flex 2 is 5,5″ (=too big).

      The big advantage of OnePlus is the SW support it usually gets. I would not hesitate to pay $250 for it. But this seems a little too much.

      The 801 is pretty good, the 810 has issues as we know, but the 808 could have been a safe alternative.

        Still doesn’t change the fact that it’s an old chip and they want people to pay premium for it, close to 2016.

        Good luck with that.

          well, pricing is wrong, but that ship is way better then any other “entry level”

    • October 26, 2015

      Yes, even chines manufacturers were using it at 2014.
      look at VIVO Xshot, it has S801, 3Gb RAM, 13MP camera with aperture f/1.8 and 6 lenses, 2.5D glass and Amoled screen.
      Yes, price is a lot higher of VIVO, but come on, they offered the same at 2014 and now it’s almost 2016.

    OPX with SD801 = FAIL. No 64b SoC…. no matter the price… FAIL !

      the price is way too high anyway…

      • Maximiliano On Line

        Agreed, if was, i dont know…. $120 maybe someone could take it… but its an ancient SoC..

    Should have gone for the 808… Now the Xiaomi Mi4c, wich does have the 808 is a much more solid choice and costs even less.

    I dont think its bad atall. 801 is the best CPU interms of performance . 3 GB ram along with 5x form factor is a treat. I am sure price will come down in few months to 230.

    • Maximiliano On Line
      October 27, 2015

      Best CPU in performance? In 2014 maybe…

      • Nishikanta
        October 27, 2015

        In real time sd801 and sd810 do not differ anything noticable plus 801 is cooler that 810.

    So OnePlus Two = great spec, crappy design
    and OnePlus X = great design, obselete spec

    Well, good luck with that strategy..

    • Aeonia
      October 29, 2015

      how is the spec obsolete? and don’t even mention the 10% increment in performance that you get with the 810

      • aquagalon
        October 29, 2015

        It’s not 810 but 801, the same SOC from their last year phone (a lower version actually)
        801 is great, but hey there’s 808 that have better GPU and 64 bit.
        Maybe it’s just because my curent device is 801 (already more than a year) so I don’t find it compeling to replace it with another similar spec’ed phone which I intend to use at least for another year..
