Update: The CEO Carl Pei has denied what rumors suggested through a post on Twitter, there is not any OnePlus X2 in the making. You can see the post below:

OnePlus ditched the X series back in 2016 after releasing just one model, in order to focus exclusively on flagship smartphones. It seems to have been a great choice if we consider the huge success of the OnePlus 5 and 5T. But according to latest rumors, something new is in the works this year, apart from the OP5T successor.

Some new voices are suggesting that the company is going to bring back the X-series by releasing a new device: OnePlus X2. According to the new rumors, OnePlus X2 will be officially announced after the OnePlus 6 and it will be a cheaper alternative rocking an octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC. Someone is already speculating that, even though the OP5T’s sales have probably gone well, the company has a surplus of SD835 chipsets to use, and the X2 would be the perfect solution to use these SoCs.

The other specs of the OnePlus X2 are rumored to include 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage depending on the variant that you will choose to buy. The handset is rumored to sport a classic 5.5-inch 16:9 display, a 16 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front snapper with Face Unlock and a 3000 mAh battery. The phone will allegedly be priced from Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 17,000. So, it is expected to be a mid-ranger, placed alongside its flagship model, the OnePlus 6. Launch could be after the OP6, but we can’t be sure.

Of course, this is just a rumor at this point, so make sure to take this with a pinch of salt. If the phone really does exist, it won’t be shy to show up in a few renders and leaks before launch.
