There comes a time in the life of every OnePlus smartphone when it’s finally available to buy just like every other phone – without the need for an invite. The OnePlus 2 has reached this state recently, and now it’s time for the smaller OnePlus X to make a first step in that direction.
The X will from now on be available to purchase sans invite every Tuesday. And this starts from tomorrow, so if you’ve been craving the 5-inch glass-clad handset (but didn’t have an invite), better start making plans. Do note however that it’s likely that only a limited quantity of devices will be up for grabs in this way every Tuesday. But if first you don’t succeed, just wait a week and try again.
Despite the public outcry, OnePlus has stuck with its much-hated invite system for all three of its smartphone launches so far. Given that, this is the first opportunity for invite-dreading individuals to buy the OnePlus X (that is, if you don’t count the three-day open sale that took place at the beginning of this month).
The phone has a 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, an 8 MP selfie shooter, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 chipset running things aided by 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 2,525 mAh battery. The software version employed is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
