Some of the purported specifications of OnePlus X includes a 5 inch full high definition IPS display with screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. This new upcoming smartphone might carry a price tag of $250 which is approximately INR 16, 500 rupees. OnePlus X is expected to be launch by December, 2015.
