More and more manufacturers are building “mini” versions of their flagship phones — if we can truly call five-inch-ish devices “mini” — but not all manage to pack the specs some of the potential buyers are expecting. Some manufacturers try to keep the costs down, others try to capitalise on the flagship sibling’s brand recognition to sell these devices. And then there are those who try to deliver the best of both worlds, like OnePlus, with its latest offering, the OnePlus X.

Announced today, the OnePlus X features a five-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM, 13MP camera with an ISOCELL sensor, eight-megapixel front-facer, 16GB of expandable storage, dual SIMs capability (or single SIM plus microSD card for expansion), and a 2,525mAh battery.

There are also, of course, some compelling features on the outside as well, when it comes to the build and materials used, not to mention the price point at which this device will make it to the market on November 5 in Europe, November 19 in the States (still invite-only).

We take a closer look at all of the above in our OnePlus X hands-on video embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
