OnePlus X available in Malaysia starting today, but there’s a catch

oneplus x launch

The OnePlus X was only announced a few days back, but it’s already available in Malaysia via a distributor.

People from DirectD are the ones to have brought the OnePlus X into Malaysia. Of course, if you want to get hold of one via OnePlus themselves, you’ll have a little more waiting to do.

As for the pricing, DirectD have actually given the phone an attractive price tag: RM1299 which translates to about $278. It’s most certainly going to be the Onyx version, for if it were to be the Ceramic one, DirectD would be selling it at loss (for $278).

The OnePlus X is OnePlus’ ‘design-centric’ phone with the old yet proven Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, and a 5-inch screen, which also makes the X their smallest phone till date.

      Higher price and potential for no warranty support.

    Onyx version is the catch?

    • November 5, 2015

      It’s the fact that DirectD aren’t authorised distributors.

    They are 3prty reseller with retail store in malaysia. Usually they’ll import high demand smarphone before launch on malaysia like meizu xiaomi oneplus etc with 2 years warranty from them. I know cuz i bought my redmi 2 from them before its launch in malaysia
