A report published by GforGames, reveals some alleged details about the upcoming OnePlus’s new smartphone OnePlus X, which is also known as OnePlus Mini. The report provides information about price, availability, and specifications of the handset.
According to the citation, the OnePlus mini might carry a price tag of $250(~Rs. 16,500) and will be unveiled at the end of this year.
Sources further suggest that the forthcoming handset from OnePlus will be powered a MediaTek chipset – MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795T that is paired with a 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage. While, a recently leaked AnTuTu benchmark listing also suggests MT6795T SoC for the smartphone.
“To compensate for the relatively poor GPU performance of the Helio X10 chip, the OnePlus mini will reportedly have the ability to render 3D games at the (lower) 720p resolution,” says the report.
In addition, it is said that the handset will sport with a 5-inch IPS full-HD display with 1080×1920 pixels of screen resolution and a 5-megapixel of front-facing camera, which will be placed above it. It is assumed that the display of the device will be protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 or 4 with an oleophobic and hydrophobic coating over it.
Meanwhile, the back of the device will likely to boast a fingerprint scanner and a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 camera with a f/2.0 aperture, 4K video recording, and dual-tone LED flash. Apart from the IP67 dust and water resistance, the device will come with a “main camera that may or may not make use of Mediatek’s 1080p@480fps Super Slow Motion recording’ and a display that uses PSR (Panel Self Refresh)”, the report further added. It will be bundled with a 3000-3100 mAh of battery, under the hood.
Rumors surfacing on the Internet suggest that smartphone with 1.2W front-facing speaker will feature connectivity options like Bluetooth 4.1, NFC that supports Android Pay, and Wi-Fi.
Vikas Agarwal, general manager of OnePlus India had said in an interview with ET Tech, “We’re introducing a new device by the end of this year. Diwali would be the ideal time, but next quarter for sure. It would be a global launch, but India will be the biggest focus.”
