A closer look at the OnePlus X

Share this story

On a cool autumnal morning in October, Carl Pei brought his international house of affordable Android excitement to London. Perhaps I'm feeling poetic because I've been inspired by the new product being introduced today: the OnePlus X. In a sea of very large and very capable Android smartphones, of which OnePlus already has a couple, the X stands out for its unimposing dimensions and minimalist aesthetic. Much like HTC's One A9 that I just reviewed, this handset's best asset is its single-handed design.

It's just cool to have nicely designed, reasonably sized smartphones on the market. But OnePlus has already proven it can build attractive phones. Hell, it even makes pretty boxes. But for this company's growth to match its hype, it has to also show itself capable of shipping its devices on time and supporting them over the long term. Read our full preview of the OnePlus X at the link below or check out the pictures for a closer look at the new device. Most feature the all-glass Onyx model, but the limited-edition Ceramic X is also present in a couple of them: you'll recognize it by its mirror-like finish.
