Over the past couple of months, there has been a long anticipation around the budget device by OnePlus, called the OnePlus X. At an event in Bengaluru later today, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau is expected to announce the OnePlus X.
According to a report by Android Headlines, the smartphone was recently certified in China as the OnePlus E1001. According to the report, the device would run Oxygen OS, and will sport IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. The device is expected to be priced around $250.
The report adds that “during the China certification, the unknown device came with the model number E1001 and this is the same model number, which has now been spotted on the FCC listings, further fuelling the notion that this is actually the OnePlus X.”
