TWRP official support for Honor 5X and OnePlus X

Do you have a OnePlus X or a Honor 5X device? If you do, you must like nice-looking smartphones with affordable prices and mid-range specs. Now, you can also safely flash custom ROMs on them because Team Win Recovery Project has offered official support to both devices. If you want, you can download the TWRP recovery images for the devices from the source links below.       The devices were chosen to get official support because the Android community usually gravitates towards a certain type of smartphone: mid-range, good looking and with great performance. These two manage to fit into every category. Since there are so many devices on the market at the moment, it is impossible to offer official support to all of them, therefore these two are pretty lucky to get any support at all. It may be the case that they did get TWRP support because OnePlus X is gaining some momentum on the US market while Honor 5X is just entering the market.   If your phone is already rooted, you can install the TWRP via the official app. If not, you can get the images from the web and install via fastboot with the help of your PC.   Source: TWRP Honor 5X, Oneplus X

OnePlus teases London event on October 29

There is a new OnePlus event taking place on October 29, if we are to believe the official Twitter announcement made earlier today. The highest probability is a new phone, of course, with the OnePLus X or Mini being first pick. The device has already been rumored to launch soon, but there was no official confirmation yet.   https://twitter.com/oneplus/status/654144640732528640     The teaser from the Chinese company shows a lighted X along with a hashtag: #PowerfullyBeautiful. The ad is completed by the meeting deets :   “See you October 29, London.”   In case the company is not trolling us all with a mock X, the general idea is that the OnePlus X IS indeed the device being launched two weeks from now. This is not the first time we ever hear of this device, as we showed you a few days ago that one such device passed FCC and TENAA. You can see those photos HERE.   What can we expect from the new OnePlus X?   This mini version of the flagship should be somewhat smaller in size, but it would still have a 5” 1080p display according to leaked benchmarks. The display is accompanied by a MediaTek MT6795 64-bit octa-core processor with 2GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera, 2450 mAh battery and maybe NFC.   It appears that the newest event held by OnePlus will take place in London, which is a change of view from the usual New York releases we’ve seen lately. We also do not know if the device […]
