According to the rumour, the device will be a mid-range smartphone sporting a slim built. The back of the OnePlus X sports a fingerprint sensor along with a dual-camera, as well as dual speaker grills at the bottom.
Going by the renders, it doesn’t look like the device will take any cue from the OnePlus 2. According to Technology Personified, the device may run on Snapdragon 615 (or its equivalent) and many also offer features like USB Type-C and a FHD screen.
In conversation with USA Today, Pei had earlier stated that the new smartphone is scheduled to release by December. “There’s going to be a second phone this year, before the end of the year. Hopefully for Christmas,” he said in the interview. However, the young co-founder did not reveal any further details on the same.
Commenting on the upcoming device, Pei had said, “When I saw the prototype for that phone I was like ‘holy s— that’s going to be my daily driver’ but then when the OnePlus 2 production version came out it’s also super nice, so its really hard to decide now what to use.”
