A number of images of what is believed to be an upcoming OnePlus smartphone have made their way online, hinting at a dual-camera.
Less than two months after OnePlus co-founder, according to USA Today, Carl Pei mentioned that the Chinese smartphone company would be unveiling their next handset just before Christmas, leaked renders of what appear to be a new handset, dubbed the OnePlus Mini, have surfaced on the Internet.
Based on the leaked images of the 5-inch slim, black smartphone laying face down on a surface, the OnePlus Mini will have a dual-camera with two lenses at the back, as well as a dual LED flash.
According to rumors, the OnePlus Mini, said to carry an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, will be better designed compared to the current-gen flagship, the OnePlus2, and is aimed at a different sector of the market altogether. It is also reported to be less expensive compared to the OnePlus2.
While the handset seems to sport a similar design to its predecessor, its thin metal body sports more rounded edges and its bottom USB port is bracketed by two rows of speaker grills on either side.
The renders of the alleged OnePlus Mini, which Chinese tech website Mobile-Dad claim to be official, also show what appears to be a fingerprint scanner.
When the OnePlus 2 emerged in August, a month after it's unveiling, it was dubbed the "2016 flagship killer," and received positive response from users. The new OnePlus Mini, similar to its predecessor, is reported to be going on sale in selected countries.
Like the OnePlus 2, only consumers who have registered to purchase the upcoming smartphone, will get purchase access to the OnePlus Mini when it becomes available in the market.
While there isn't more information about the upcoming handset's details, which are touted to be less specc'd compared to the OnePlus 2, reports have surfaced the OnePlus Mini will be launched to the public in time for OnePlus' anniversary on December 17 with a price tag of approximately $249.
