Claimed OnePlus Mini benchmark reveals specs

We already know a new OnePlus smartphone is in the works. But what will it look like?

A new leak gives us a better idea about the specs of OnePlus’ next handset.

According to a Weibo post (via GForGames), which cites an AnTuTu benchmark readout, the handset will be a smaller version of the OnePlus, codename ‘A2301’.

Other rumours suggest the device is going to be called the OnePlus Mini, so this latest leak gels with those expectations.

The benchmark also revealed the device may feature a display with a 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution – that’s the same as the OnePlus 2.

Also rumoured to be on board is an octa-core MediaTek MT6795T processor – not Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 – clocked at 2.2GHz.

That’ll allegedly be coupled with a PowerVR Rogue G6200-series GPU, with 2GB of RAM to boot.

It also appears as though the handset will ship with 32GB of storage, and a 13-megapixel main camera.

Unsurprisingly, the operating system is listed as Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Although we expect this will be skinned with OnePlus’ OxygenOS.

Earlier this week, a couple of renders leaked online purporting to show the OnePlus Mini.

While the handset pictured retained several familiar design points, the look of the phone departed in several ways from previous OnePlus devices.

For instance, the device is slimmer and has more rounded edges than the OnePlus 2.

There’s also no front-facing camera on the renders, but the rear has two image sensors.

The back of the phone also appears to host a fingerprint sensor, in contrast to the front home button scanner on the OnePlus 2.

Of course, we have no way of verifying these claimed OnePlus 2 renders, so take those, and this latest spec leak, with a pinch of salt.
