More details on this year’s second smartphone from OnePlus have been leaked, and it looks like the company is trying to fix some of the issues that people have with the OnePlus 2, although this comes at the cost of having weaker specs. Known as the OnePlus Mini, an anonymous source has told G-for-Games that the 5-inch smartphone will launch sometime in November or December for around $250, but we’re not sure if the OnePlus Mini is just another name for the OnePlus X that we heard about a couple of weeks ago. The source also claims that the smartphone will have a couple of things that the OnePlus 2 conspicuously lacks: microSD support and NFC support.
As you might already be aware of, OnePlus is rumored to be working on a second smartphone for 2015, which so far has been referred to by the industry as the OnePlus mini. Information about the terminal has leaked on several occasions before, and as its moniker suggests, the handset is meant as a mid-range entry with a lower price tag than the full-fledged OnePlus 2. Excitingly enough, today we received an email from an anonymous source, who claims to know almost all the details surrounding a OnePlus mini prototype. The source also adds that the handset will have a price tag of roughly $250 and that it might be launched in November or December 2015. According to our source, the OnePlus mini (or at least one of the terminal’s prototype models) is equipped with MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) SoC, and 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM @933MHz operating in dual-channel. It boasts 32 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage expandable via microSDXC and a 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The screen is covered in 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 or 4 and is protected by an oleophobic and hydrophobic coating.
