Another leak had tipped the OnePlus X may come with a price tag of CNY 1,399 which translates roughly to Rs. 14,500 or $220 - but this may be the China-only pricing of the handset.
Retailers, certification authorities, and benchmark sites have variously tipped
the the OnePlus X to sport a 5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) IPS display; quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor or octa-core MediaTek MT6795 SoC; 2GB or 3GB RAM; 16GB inbuilt storage; a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, and a 2450mAh battery.
at Tenaa, a Chinese telecommunications certification authority, the OnePlus X sported a slightly different design than the current OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. Three capacitive buttons were seen placed below the display and the side bezels were said to sport a metal build.
