A new OnePlus handset is reportedly on the way, but it will unlikely be a true flagship successor to the OnePlus Two.
Instead, it looks like we’ll be getting a mid-range handset, rumored to be called OnePlus X, and if a new report from Gizmochina is correct, it’ll be here next month.
Not too much is known about the handset, but according to the report, it will come sporting a 5-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which is the same as can be found in the OnePlus Two.
But the report also claims it will be a less powerful handset, and so rumors are suggesting the OnePlus X will carry a cheaper price of about $250.
Unfortunately, the rumors come from "factory sources," so we suggest taking the above news with a grain of salt.
Earlier this year, Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus, said "there’s going to be a second phone this year, before the end of the year. Hopefully for Christmas."
However, he also added, "When I saw the prototype for that phone, I was like ‘holy s*** that’s going to be my daily driver’," so we are surprised to hear that the next handset from them would be targeted to the mid-range.
So while we you should take the above with a grain of salt, if the rumors of the launch month are true, and with October just around the corner, we’ll find out what OnePlus has in store for us soon enough.
