OnePlus has announced that its 5-inch handset is now available at a reduced price in the Indian market. The OnePlus X will now permanently be available in the country for Rs. 14,999, Rs. 2,000 less than its launch price. OnePlus had also reduced the price of the OnePlus 2 in India last month, and the price reductions should make for increased sales in the price-sensitive market.
At the new price, the OnePlus X is a good deal, with hardware that includes a 5-inch AMOLED display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The device also has 16GB of expandable internal storage, 4G LTE connectivity, dual SIM slots, and a 2,525 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and Marshmallow should be available for the handset at some point.
