Staying true to the rumors the new Android phone OnePlus X was officially announced today at a venue in London. Its older version OnePlus 2 is not even shipping out to customers yet but considering the customers love for the phone and the enthusiasm of gadget lovers they announced it. They are saying that as they called 2 promising, they have high expectations for this new improvement.
Earlier this week we had a quick look of the new device at an event which held at San Francisco, the Onyx version for the device will be available in the UK from 5th November for EUR269 on OnePlus.net. The invite will be open for a month and the ceramic version will be accessible to customers in Europe and India from 24th November for EUR369. Only 10,000 are accessible for now and it has a good reason for it as to make them they need 25 days in which it is fire-baked at 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 28 hours.
The company has also announced their own headphones, compatible with their new phones called OnePlus Icons. Customers will get the headphones at 49$. But it is sad that you are going to have to pay extra if you want everything in a symmetry as the new OnePlus X does not come with a headphone.
The headphones will be available to customers just before Christmas, and they will come in two colors graphite and gold.

We spoke with the co-founder of OnePlus Carl Pei last week after his San Francisco keynote and he told us the reason why the world needs this company. He says because Apple does not have a challenger. He says that the Chinese smartphone company calls 2 its flagship killer but he is not sure what X is The Flagship Killer Killer?
