OnePlus today released the first community build of OxygenOS 3.1.0 based on Marshmallow for the OnePlus X. Since this is a community build, it will not be rolled out to OnePlus X owners out there.
Yesterday, due to an email being sent out by OnePlus, it was assumed that the OnePlus X had seen the last of it’s days and was quietly and respectfully taking a bow. That seems to be partially true, with OnePlus confirming that thus far, only the champagne colour has been sold out, while the handset will continue to be available in black and onyx.
Less than a month after revealing that there will not be any successor to the OnePlus X, it looks like the company has silently discontinued the handset. The Never Settle company is sending out emails to customers who had ordered the handset from its online store informing them that the X is out of stock and that it has no plans of replenishing the stock anytime soon.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau revealed during the launch of the OnePlus 3 in Shenzhen that the company will not be launching a successor to the OnePlus X later this year. Instead, the company is killing off the series entirely, which means that the OnePlus X will be the first and the latest budget smartphone from the Never Settle company.
Being able to buy devices is probably the most important part of the whole show, so for anyone who has been wanting more ways to buy a OnePlus-branded smartphone, Amazon may be just what you were waiting for.
Ahead of the OnePlus 3 unveiling in June, OnePlus has announced a price drop for all their handsets. The price drop will see the $349 OnePlus 2 selling for $299, while the OnePlus X can now be had for as little as $199.
After the announcement of OxygenOS 3.0’s beta Marshmallow update being available for OnePlus 2, users of OnePlus X are now able to update to OxygenOS 2.2.1. This move will help fix flaws in Lollipop and prepare users for the Marshmallow update in the future.
The OnePlus X and OnePlus 2 have been available for a bit of time now, but for anyone that has been waiting to buy one, and didn’t want to drop hundreds of dollars at once, the time to buy might have finally arrived.
Starting from today, you will be able to buy the OnePlus X without any invite. The X is the latest handset from the young company that can now be purchased without going through the hassle of getting an invite first.
OnePlus has started rolling out an incremental OxygenOS v2.2.0 update for the OnePlus X that fixes some bugs and introduces a couple of new features.
