OnePlus X costs $299

The OnePlus X will officially be available on the 29th of October and we have already found a listing for it.

Gearbest is listing the OnePlus X and it is supposed to start selling shortly. The phone supports 4G, it is black, and packs a Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with 2.0 GHz clock. The phone comes with 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and two cameras, a 13 megapixel shooter at the back and a front camera with 8 megapixel resolution. The larger camera comes with autofocus and the phone has dual-SIM capability.

The 5.0-inch screen supports 1920x1080 Full HD resolution and should be enough for anyone. The 5-inch screen makes it a compact device. Just a few years back, a 4.3-inch phone was considered to be a flagship monster, yet now 5-inch phones are "minis". The phone looks rather good, with what it looks like a metal frame, a few buttons and clean, boxy and square design.  

OnePlus followers love the fact that the phone runs Oxygen OS, which is based on Android 5.1. One can be sure that the OnePlus will do the invitation marketing trick for this device too, but we will know a bit more about how the company plans to distribute this phone by 29th October, which is  the official launch date.

The list price of $299 doesn’t include the shipping cost and you should add some $10 to the cost. Then there is import tax and VAT (sales tax) on top of this price.  Somewhat cheaper phones with a superior specs can be found online, but let’s hope that OnePlus marketing can help them shift more of these devices.
