OnePlus X goes for glass and ceramic as features points

There were talks that OnePlus was bringing out another device to market (maybe as a way to deal with lower than expected OnePlus 2 sales), and here it is: the OnePlus X, a cheaper smartphone that goes for the premium feel with higher quality materials.

The OnePlus 2 is a very nice device, but times have changed, and it now fails to compete with the avalanche of new, lower cost, chinese smartphones, some of which use machine tooled metal chassis and 2.5D and 3D glass that make it look as premium as any other high-end device (at a fraction of its cost). So, OnePlus answer seems to be this new OnePlus X.

The OnePlus X comes in two versions: Onyx, made of metal and black glass; and Ceramic, a premium version using ceramic with a scratch resistance of 8.5H in the Mohs scale. But though it focus on the outside, what's on the inside still matters: we get a 5" Full HD OLED screen (a first in the brand), a Snapdragon 801, 3GB RAM, 16GB + microSD up to 128GB, 13MP and 8MP cameras, dual SIM, 2525mAh LiPo battery and we even get the Alert Slider button on the side, allowing us to quickly toggle between silence, alerts, or full sound.

The OnePlus X begins sales on November 19th, but you'll have to wait for an invite to get one. Prices are $249 for the glass version, and $349 for the ceramic version (limited to 10,000 units.)
