OnePlus X Drops Its Robe To Flash 1.9GHz SoC, 5.5-inch Display On October 29th

The OnePlus team promised yet another smartphone model by the end of the year and it will announce that upcoming model later this month. Specifically, on October 29, which falls on a Thursday. That's the date OnePlus is teasing on Twitter, and it also appears on a handful of Chinese-language invitations.

Each teaser photo with the October 29 date sports a giant illuminated X in the middle. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, or even a general purpose scientist, to figure out that OnePlus is gearing up to launch the rumored OnePlus X handset, which will be its second handset released in 2015 (the OnePlus 2 is the other).

There have already been several leaks of the OnePlus X. Barring any surprises, it will debut with a 5.5-inch display, as detailed in a recent filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) where it's listed as the One E1005.

The filing also reveals a 1.9GHz processor and support for LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and FM radios. There's nothing in the documents about what platform the phone will run, though it's probably a safe bet it will be OxygenOS, a customized version of Android built by OnePlus.

There's also an accompanying photo in the filing. If you were a fan of the design of the iPhone 4, you'll like the OnePlus X, which looks to sport a similar semi-industrial construction. Instead of rounded sides, as found on the current generation iPhone models, the OnePlus X has flat sides. You can also make out a rear facing camera with flash.
