This week on GizChina: OnePlus X, Letv Le 1s, and more


The past 5 days have been some of the most happening ones as far as the Chinese smartphone industry is concerned. Not only did we see a few regular launches from the mainstream makers, but arguably more importantly, saw some interesting couple launches.

These include the new design-centric OnePlus X, along with the super impressive superphone from Letv — the Letv Le 1s.

Here’s the most important bits from the past week, all in one place!

This week on GizChina — 10/31/2015

1. Letv Le 1s announced with killer spec for under $200

If the first-gen Letv ‘super phones’ didn’t impress you enough, say hello to the Letv Le 1s which is a $170 phone with the 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio X10, a fingerprint sensor, 3GB RAM, and other flagship-grade specifications.

2. ZUK Z1 review

Everyone’s doing sub-brand these days, and ZUK is Lenovo’s attempt at that. The Z1 is the first phone from ZUK, and with a large battery paired with mildly powerful internals, the ZUK Z1 makes for an interesting phone.

3. OnePlus X announced for $250

The OnePlus X was finally announced a couple of days back with an impressive design and a couple different variants in an Onyx and a Ceramic one.

4. A $37 iPhone 6s clone appears

It’s been a while since a clone managed to grab headlines on GizChina (which is a great thing, shows manufacturers are making original phones). But this $37 phone certainly demands your attention for a bit!

5. Meizu MX5 gets Flyme 5.0

The Meizu MX5 is regarded as a very potent hardware device, but one that lacked sheen on the software front. But that’s changed now since the Flyme 5.0 update that the phone received earlier this week.
