The #OnePlusX is a pretty decent device given its pricing of $249. However, it lacks that edge which is found on most midrange smartphones today. One can argue that this is due to the aging Snapdragon 801 chipset running on the device. It seems like the company is mindful of that as an upgraded version of the handset has been spotted on TENAA, which is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC.
The smartphone listed here looks exactly like the OnePlus X, but is said to be packing the octa core Snapdragon 810 chipset underneath, which should make it a pretty powerful device as far as the hardware is concerned.
The device is also shown to be packing a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot underneath. So basically, there are no other hardware changes listed here apart from the chipset.
The SoC was seen as the only weakness of the OnePlus X, so this new revamped model could make quite an impact on the mobile industry when made available. We hope that this revamped model of the handset comes with support for a wider range of American LTE bands as well, which was the primary complaint among the customers of the OnePlus X in the U.S.
