The new OnePlus X comes in two brand new editions: OnePlus X Ceramic and OnePlus X Onyx. Although, the ceramic edition is quite fancier than the standard Onyx, it is also comes along with a spicy price.
So, let’s take a quick look at the brand new phone design. Elegant, minimalistic in design, the phone packs a sturdy Gorilla Glass, able to withstand most mechanical shocks. Also the metal insertions on each side add a nice touch to the design.

The phone comes equipped with a 5” AMOLED display and a series of capacitive buttons have been added below the screen. As for other hardware, the phone packs a clocked 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which features the Adreno 330 GPU unit. Although the processor itself is 2 years old, the overall experience won’t be affected by this.
