OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 5! Have you ever stopped to think why there is not a fourth model named as such? It turns out that the 4 is a number whose pronunciation gives bad luck in Chinese , so the firm decided to skip the number.

It seems that the Chinese karma was against him, and he was paid with the jelly effect, however, The OnePlus 5 was and is one of the best shopping alternatives in the high range .

OnePlus X2

Many users have been asking for a second version of the OnePlus X for years. The first and only mid-range of the firm . A beautiful terminal, finished in glass, and with good software that was abandoned due to certain hardware problems and breaches by the firm.

OnePlus decided to focus on the flagships , and we never heard news about terminals of this firm in the mid-range.

Xiaomi Mi 2015

Curiously, in 2015 Xiaomi did not launch any high-end terminal of the Mi X range . The Xiaomi Mi 4 is a terminal of 2014, and until 2016, they did not release the Mi 5. It is curious that that year was left in the nothing for Xiaomi, which only released variations of the Mi 4 like the Mi 4S, Mi 4C and Mi 4i, terminals that were anything but high-end.

Sony Xperia Z6

Sony is a traditional firm to say enough. Even changing the omnibalance design they refuse to eliminate the bevels , and is that they are convinced that the lines they have been following for some time are adequate.

The Sony Xperia Z6 was never born, and is that the Z family was seen relieved by the X. A change of nomenclature, but not philosophy , which made the firm keep its essence until today.

iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and iPhone 9

Although the current iPhone 8 and 8 Plus should be called 7S and 7S Plus, since they are nothing more than the same cell phones finished in glass, with better processor and a couple of improvements in the camera , Apple needed to distinguish them something more, since 2017 was a year of changes.

The same thing happened with the ninth model, which went directly to be called X, as a reason for the celebration of Apple’s tenth anniversary .
