There has been a lot of talk of late around what OnePlus will announce next. It has been long known that the company will be unveiling a third device in their arsenal, a second for this year. Although, beyond the initial confirmation announcement, little else has been confirmed. That said, there has been a lot of assumptions based on the information which has come though so far.
The first assumption is that this will be a mid-range device and as such, will come with an umber of more mid-range specs including 2GB RAM and a 2,450 mAh battery. There is also a common assumption that it will either be called the OnePlus X or the OnePlus Mini. This morning, a new report came out detailing that an Amazon listing seemed to be confirming a number of the specs, which besides the RAM and battery mAh, also seemed to confirm the 5-inch display, the Full HD resolution and the use of additional features like SideTouch technology. In terms of the design, before this week, there were next-to-no images of the upcoming device. Although, the last few days saw the arrival of images on an FCC listing which were then followed by clearer images from a TENAA listing. Now, another image has appeared which does seem to show what is probably the OnePlus X/Mini.
The image is of OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau along with Xiaomi’s Global VP, Hugo Barra. As you can see from the image, Lau is holding a Xiaomi device and Barra is holding an unknown device. However, due to the images which have come through from the FCC and TENAA recently (TENAA image below for comparison), the camera placement and the general design of the smartphone does indeed look like the OnePlus X/Mini. Even the logo placement seems to make sense, although, it is obviously covered up with the logo you can see in the image above. If this is the new OnePlus X/Mini, then as well as the other emerging details, it does look like there will be a white variant on the way, as well as the black model we have seen in the recent FCC and TENAA images.
