After we caught wind of what could have been the OnePlus X Plus in late 2015, our hopes were dashed by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau the following summer. He told us that there were no plans for a low-end OnePlus X successor at that time. Almost two years have passed since that proclamation, so has anything developed in the OnePlus X2 front since?

According to some rumblings on the digital streets earlier today, OnePlus is working on an official follow-up to the OnePlus X that everyone is calling the OnePlus X2.

The idea is that it would take the same kind of premium affordable mindset as its predecessor and bump the specs up to current standards.

The rumors pointed toward a Snapdragon 835 processor and a 5.5-inch display, along with Face Unlock, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage, a 16MP front camera, and a 3000mAh battery with Dash Charge. And the kicker is that they'd keep the price way down in the $250 range.

Sounds good, right? Well, in response to a tweet from GSMArena, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei offered a simple, one-word bombshell: "Nope."

Well, so much for that.



So while the OnePlus X page still lives on the OnePlus website, clicking on the "buy now" button reveals that every configuration of the affordable smartphone is "out of stock." At this point, you can buy whatever OnePlus smartphone you want, so long as it's the 5T. But hey, at least there's a new Lava Red edition.
