After the launch of OnePlus 2, company already confirmed to launch another smartphone in December 2015. So many people were talking bad about OnePlus that they ditched mentioning OnePlus 2 as “flagship killer” and “Never Settle.” Users thought that OnePlus is going to launch something more powerful compared to existing OnePlus 2, and expected Snapdragon 820 or Helio X20.
However, the recent leak appeared on Weibo can make you happy if you have already bought OnePlus 2. Yes, OnePlus is not going to launch an advanced version, but the lower one. According to recent leak, OnePlus is preparing the mini version of OnePlus 2 that will be sold at cheaper rate.
OnePlus 2 Mini Rendering images
OnePlus 2 mini technical specifications
The rendering image doesn’t have quite clear view of front panel, but it doesn’t seem to have any physical button. The back panel shows dual rear camera with dual-LED flash, and finger print scanner. OnePlus 2 features a physical button for finger print sensor, and why they would put it back in another device. This is quite doubtful.
The charging port is MicroUSB again, and there is dual spear at the left and right side of MicroUSB port. So what happened to USB Type-C ? Well, OnePlus 2 mini would feature same chipset found in OnePlus One. It has been rumored to to come up with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 SoC, that is a 32-bit chipset. We don’t think OnePlus 2 would really do that. If it is a mid-range phone, OnePlus may use Snapdragon 617, and it makes sense as Qualcomm has already said that device with Snapdragon 617 would arrive by the end of this year. The rumor about OnePlus 2 mini price is to be somewhere around $ 160.
Apart from Chipset, camera and finger Print Sensor, OnePlus 2 mini is expected to feature a 5-inch 1080 pixels display, 2GB/3GB RAM and 16GB/32 GB ROM plus MicroSD card slot.
