DirectD brings the OnePlus X to Malaysia and it is available today


Last week OnePlus had announced the X, a 5″ mid-ranger that sits right below its existing OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 in terms of specs. Instead of a top spec flagship killing machine, the OnePlus X focuses more on design aesthetics. If you can’t wait for the official sales that come with its annoying invitation system, you can get it now in Malaysia thanks to our local grey importer, DirectD.


Likely to be the Onyx version, DirectD is offering the OnePlus X for RM1,299 inclusive of GST. That’s not too shabby considering it retails for US$249 (RM1,069) in the US and 269 Euro (about RM1,255) in Europe.

To recap on the specs, the internals are quite similar with the first OnePlus One model except for its smaller screen. The front gets a 5″ Full HD AMOLED display giving a 440 ppi pixel density and it runs on a Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM. Storage wise it packs just 16GB but this time it is expandable with microSD.

Like the OnePlus 2, it gets a hybrid dual-SIM slot supporting two SIM cards or alternative 1 SIM plus 1 microSD card. For imaging, the OnePlus X gets a 13MP f/2.2 camera with a single LED flash, while the front gets a 8MP selfie camera. Keeping the lights on is a 2,525mAh battery and it also gets a 3-step alert slider on the sides like the bigger OnePlus 2 sibling. Out of the box, it runs on OxygenOS that’s based on Android 5.1.1.

For the price and the specs it offers, it is pretty close to the OnePlus One that’s priced at RM1,399 with GST. You get the exact same specs inside plus a larger 5.5″ Full HD screen. However do note that it only comes with a Single SIM slot and it lacks a microSD expansion slot and the new alert slider.

If you’re interested, you can order the OnePlus X online. Alternatively you can drop by their showroom at Subang Jaya or at their Gadget Mega Store along Federal Highway. According to DirectD, stocks will be available starting today 5th November after 7PM.
