OnePlus has already made its 'Flagship Killer for 2016' aka the OnePlus 2 Invite Free a few days back. Even the recently launched OnePlus X (Onyx Edition) is available Invite Free for today on Amazon.in.
However OnePlus hasn't yet decided to cut all strings with their favourite 'Invite System' (at least as of yet). Apparently the Chinese startup has today introduced the Ceramic version of the OnePlus X onto the Indian market.
The OnePlus X (Review) Ceramic Edition is priced at Rs 22,999 and is available at Amazon via a special Ceramic edition Invite. While the Ceramic edition in the hindsight may appear to be too costly especially for a device with a dated Snapdragon 801 inside.
However OnePlus has a valid point behind their move to price the Ceramic edition so higher. According to the Chinese smartphone brand the OnePlus X Ceramic Edition will be limited edition product and only 10,000 units of the same will ever be sold.
In terms of specs the OnePlus X sports a 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 SoC coupled with an Adreno 330 GPU. Add to that the presence of 3GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. On the front of the device is a 5 inch Full HD (1920x1080) AMOLED panel along with an 8MP selfie snapper using OV8858 f/2.4 wide angles sensor up top.
The front camera is complimented by a 13MP f/2.2 camera on the back which comes with a Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and a single LED flash. For protection OnePlus had used Gorilla Glass 3 in both the front and rear glass panels. The 13MP camera which sits flush on the back is capable of recording Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p) at 30fps. Sadly, there no support for capturing 4K footage.
OnePlus has succeeded to keep this device rather thin at 6.8 mm despite including a 2525mAh battery on the inside. There have also included a MicroSD card slot onto this 'thin' device, thereby making it a sweeter deal. Nevertheless the device mayn't be breaking any records when it comes to 'thinness'.
Just like the OnePlus 2, the new device from the company comes with 'Alert Slider". It will basically allow you to toggle between All Notifications, No Notifications and Priority Notifications.
The OnePlus X runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 with the company's own Oxygen OS 2.1 on top. The device is also scheduled to receive an Android Marshmallow update soon.
