OnePlus X Champagne edition comes to Europe

OnePlus has announced the additions of the OnePlus X Champagne edition to the European market to celebrate its second birthday.

The startup Chinese manufacturer has had a busy 2015, launching two vastly different phones in the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. That’s quite a feat in only its second year of existence.

To mark OnePlus’s second birthday, company co-founder Carl Pei has announced the launch of the OnePlus X Champagne edition in Europe, with other markets to follow.

This former China exclusive is essentially a white and gold model of the regular OnePlus X. It will be sold during the company’s weekly open sales on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who already have a OnePlus X invite can redeem them against this new model too.

Pei also took time in his lengthy forum post to talk about the company’s progress to this point.

“I think 2015 will be remembered as the year where we marked that OnePlus is here to stay,” Pei says. “We’ve been trying our best to do the right things at the right time, not taking unnecessary risks, and not letting noise or competition get in the way.”

Pei is also honest about his company’s shortcomings, and accepts that the kind of delays and customer service shortfalls people have been experiencing become unacceptable as OnePlus moves into its third year.

“If OnePlus in the past two years was the naughty kid that came and stirred the smartphone industry pot, I hope that 2016 will be the year where people see this kid developing and maturing into a more responsible member of the community,” he says.
