OnePlus may have released its latest flagship phone, the OnePlus 2, only a few months ago, however, the company isn't stopping there for the year.
A post on Twitter today teased the upcoming OnePlus X smartphone, suggesting that the device will be announced later this month, on Oct. 29.
This isn't the first time we've heard about the OnePlus X, with the phone being discovered in an FCC filing earlier this month. The filing showed that the device would have a 5.5-inch display. The release of more phones also isn't that surprising considering the fact that co-founder Carl Pei has said that there would be more phone releases before the end of the year.
A number of images of the OnePlus X have also been released, showing a design that is very inspired by the latest iPhone, offering a very simplistic and sleek look.
The OnePlus X is largely expected to be a midrange device, the first from OnePlus after the releases of the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. The device will feature a 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, which is the same chip that the OnePlus One had last year. It is also expected to feature dual cameras with a dual-LED flash, along with a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. Apart from that, details about the device are unknown, although reports have said that the device is being marketed at the $250 price range.
Ever since it first emerged with the OnePlus One, OnePlus has cemented itself as a company that offers flagship phones at a very affordable price. Having said that, the $389 price tag on the OnePlus 2 is still a lot of money, so it makes sense that the company would want to release a lower-priced device for the more budget-minded.
