With the launch of many competitors in the budget segment, OnePlus is feeling the heat, already. Maybe that’s the reason why the company decided to lower down the pricing of its OnePlus X smartphone in India. The OnePlus X (Onyx variant) was launched at Rs. 16,999 in October last year, and now the same variant will be retailing at Rs. 14,999 via Amazon India.
The price cut, as of now, is made for the OnePlus X Onyx variant. The company has not revealed any such action for the OnePlus X Champagne Edition and OnePlus X Limited Ceramic Edition. Both the special editions are still listed at Rs. 16,999 and Rs. 22,999 respectively. To recap, at the time of its launch, the smartphone was up for sale through an invite-only system (something that OnePlus should totally abandon for its upcoming devices). However, in February, OnePlus lifted the invite-only requirement for the purchase.
In terms of specifications, the OnePlus X comes with a 5-inch full-HD AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card). The device is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset and runs OxygenOS based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It sports a 13-megapixel primary camera with flash along with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Backing the device is a non-removable 2525mAh of battery.
Summing it up, it would be interesting to see if the price cut would prove to be beneficial for the OnePlus X, in terms of sales. What’s your take on the report? Let us know through the comment section below.
