OnePlus 2 Mini tipped for flagship power in smaller body

OnePlus is yet to give us a small smartphone, and for some that is annoying. The OnePlus 2 boasts a sizable 5.5-inch display while the OnePlus X still pushes your palm with its 5-inch offering – but salvation may be around the corner as details of the supposed OnePlus 2 Mini leak.

Dutch site TechTastic reports the phone was discovered on GFXBench, an app that runs benchmarks on phones to check performance, with the OnePlus 2 Mini showing up in its database despite no official announcement from the Chinese startup.

According to the details revealed in the benchmark results the OnePlus 2 Mini is tipped to pack a 4.6-inch display, which would see it compete with the iPhone 6S when it comes to screen size.

On the inside, the phone is apparently identical to the full size OnePlus 2, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU on the inside and 4GB of RAM.

It will apparently come with 64GB of storage, a 12MP rear camera with laser auto-focus and optical image stabilisation, a front facing 5MP camera for selfies and like the OnePlus 2, no NFC – a feature that bizarrely was included on the OnePlus One but not its successor.

What seems slightly bizarre about any new device is that OnePlus already has a slightly smaller phone. The OnePlus X was released literally last month. It isn’t clear when OnePlus will announce anything new – though we’re guessing it probably won’t be until at least after Christmas now.
