OnePlus, the company behind the #FlagshipKiller line of devices recently unveiled a premium android smartphone that trades of futuristic improvements for style. Dubbed the OnePlus X, the device has since then been made available in countries like the US and India but can only be purchased with the invite system (for the first 30 days only).

Well, earlier this year local telco company Maxis announced a partnership between OnePlus to officially sell the OnePlus One in Malaysia and since then, Maxis also started offering the newer OnePlus 2 to their customers. But it looks like Maxis will not be the only one selling OnePlus devices in Malaysia (officially that is) as Brightstar which also the official distributor of Motorola devices in Malaysia has opened up a Pre-order page through Lazada for the #PowerfullyBeautiful OnePlus X.

As for the price, Brightstar is pricing the OnePlus X a little higher compared to the RRP from OnePlus which is just US$ 249 (or about MYR 1,048 with today's exchange rate). For RM 1,288 you will be getting the premium metal and glass design paired with an older Snapdragon 801 CPU with a 5" 1080P display, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable memory, a 13MP rear camera, an 8MP fron camera and a 2,525mAh battery.

The specifications themselves don't match up to the flagship killer standards that the company is used to but as I mentioned earlier, the OnePlus X is designed to be a device that flaunts it's looks rather than it's brains. Also, unlike the OnePlus 2, this device uses a standard microUSB port for charging and it also comes with a microSD card slot which doubles as a second nano SIM card slot.

You can now start Pre-ordering the OnePlus X through the official listing on Lazada for RM 1,288 which includes a free protective case and orders are expected to arrive next Friday (December 4) and No, you do not need a invite to buy the OnePlus X in Malaysia but we are unsure whether is this listing based on a limited stock or not
