OnePlus X TENAA Leaks Paint a Clearer Image
We recently mentioned a mysterious OnePlus device which showed up at FCC. Now the same device has made its way to Chinese regulatory authority TENAA, and has been leaked on Wiebo in the process. We are now privy to some more images of the device, so let’s get on to it!
The images match up with the sole image from FCC. What you’re seeing is a device that deviates from the OnePlus 2 in terms of its design. On the front of the device, you see the familiar markings for buttons that is present on OnePlus devices, while the fingerprint scanner is absent entirely. On the back, you see a camera module with traditional single-tone LED flash, which is again distinct from OnePlus’ language. The plastic antennae bands are visible on the top and bottom of the device, and you can also see the alert slider from the OnePlus 2 carry on to this device.
An info page screenshot also accompanies the device shots, and these point to the model of the device. Interesting point to note is the presence of a 2,450 mAh battery, which is still decent for a smaller sized device, even if it may not be as massive as the 3,100 mAh battery on the OnePlus One.
Many in the tech circles were expecting OnePlus to launch this device, the OnePlus X, in its India event today. But instead, the company announced its participation in the “Make In India” campaign, through which it will have its own local manufacturing unit in India in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Overall, the design language of the OnePlus X is more like a Nexus 4 than a OnePlus 2. Of course, leaked images from TENAA do not do justice to a device and its looks, so we will have to wait for clearer imagery to pass judgement on this change of pace from OnePlus.
