eventual 5" OnePlus X will be the company's first attempt to diversify its smartphone line,
which so far consists of two 5.5" handsets - the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2.

though from the description it seems that the lower price will be for event
attendees, likely in limited numbers. In any case, the grand unveiling is just
a few days away, when we will know exactly how much the eventual OnePlus X will
