X marks the spot for Optus’ X Sleek handset



Optus’ latest prepaid Android handset is a low-cost option that the carrier describes as "Sleek".

At 7.45mm wide, it might just have a point, but at $149 outright, the X Sleek is most definitely a low-cost budget range option for customers on Optus’ 4G network. Running on Android 6.0 ("Marshmallow") with a quad-core 1.3GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, you could expect moderate performance, but probably not anything groundbreaking, from the X Sleek. The X Sleek features a 5 inch 720p IPS display and a rear 13MP f/2.2 lens, as well as a 5MP front selfie camera.

While the X Sleek features 16GB of onboard memory, only 9.5GB of that memory is user accessible, but it’s at least expandable via microSD.

Optus of course hasn’t set up factories of its own, and a brief browse through its user manual suggests that the original manufacturer for this device is Chinese manufacturer TCL. TCL already has its own low-cost mobile brand in Alcatel, which means that the X Sleek effectively joins the Alcatel Pop 4 in Optus’ prepaid budget handset range. Optus' announcement suggests that it will use the "X" branding for future prepaid phones as well, so the X Sleek may soon have some siblings.

The X Sleek is on sale from today for $149 outright via Optus and selected retailers.
