Forgetting OnePlus’ annoying invite system, the OnePlus X is actually a pretty solid option when it comes to budget smartphones. Our own Dom Esposito went as far as to say that it’s the “best budget phone available.” Now, as expected, OnePlus says that you can buy both Ceramic and Champagne variants via open sale in Europe and Hong Kong for a limited time…
We will start selling in different times per region:
Hong Kong: 16:00 pm (Onyx, Champagne & Ceramic)
Europe (CET): 16:00 pm (Onyx, Champagne & Ceramic)
North America: 16:00 pm (Onyx)
OnePlus says that if you want to buy the OnePlus X Champagne at a time other than this open sale, you need to register for an invite at onepl.us/invites. The company is only selling Onyx to North America through this sale, but will begin selling the Champagne model in North America starting sometime in January.
The OnePlus X features a 5-inch resolution 1920 x 1080 AMOLED display covered by Gorilla Glass 3. The rest of the specs line up pretty well with what we saw with the first OnePlus phone, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage by default, and a slot that can hold a Micro SD card or a second nano SIM.
