OnePlus X launched with Rs 16999 price tag, here are all the details

The much anticipated OnePlus X launch has finally taken place, and the device has been revealed to bear a Rs 16999 price tag in India. Actually, that retail value applies to the base version of the device, with a special edition having been placed at Rs 22999.

Strangely enough, the only difference between the two models is that the expensive limited edition model will ship with a ceramic back panel. The usual variant, which is called OnePlus X Onyx will ship with a glass back.

The invite system is still there; so those hoping to buy this dual SIM device will need to first win the right to do so. The metal-framed X smartphone will be sold exclusively by Amazon in India from November 5 onwards. The Ceramic version will be going on sale from November 24 onwards.
