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.
