OnePlus X: The newest OnePlus brings along 10 firsts for a OnePlus
The one plus may not have arrived loaded with high-end specs like the OnePlus One and its successor – the OnePlus 2 – but it still manages to stand out in the limited OnePlus portfolio.Third in the OnePlus lineup, the new X handset is credited with bringing in a number of firsts for a OnePlus. And the price tag of Rs 16,999, making it the cheapest OnePlus phone, is the cherry on the top. Glass back/Ceramic back: Unlike the last-two generations of OnePlus handsets that were introduced in Sandstone Black and Silk White (only for the OnePlus One), the OnePlus X comes with a glass back. This is for the first time that OnePlus has introduced a phone with a back made of black glass (Onyx). There is another variant of the phone that comes with a Ceramic back, but before you begin to visualise, this limited-edtion variant also gives an impression of a glass back – but with less blacks. The glass at the rear of the OnePlus X is so glossy that it could also double as a mirror.In what is said to have been added on request from users across India, FM radio finally makes its way to a OnePlus phone. With the addition of OnePlus Radio, the X smartphone becomes the first OnePlus phone to come with the FM capability. Like in most of the phones, it works only if the earphones are plugged in. There are, however, phones available that activate FM radio without needing earphones to act as an antenna.
