[updated] "Mini" OnePlus One to sport 5-inch display, Snapdragon 615 processor, $245 price tag?

[updated]
Two photos of a purported "mini" OnePlus One showed up on the Internet, along with a spec sheet that seems in tune with what one would expect in a low-cost midranger by the Chinese upstart.

According to the AnTuTu device profile from the first photo, the smartphone has a 5-inch display (how's that for mini?), a Snapdragon 615 processor, and what appears to be two 8MP cameras on the front and back panels. The operating system is Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Moving on to the looks, they don't seem much different than those of the original OnePlus One, but the plastic texture on the back is rougher.

According to the source, the mini OnePlus One will be announced in 2015 and it will sell for $245 (1499 RMB). Psst, can we reserve an invite already?

Meanwhile, purported specs of the OnePlus One successor were leaked by a Chinese reseller in the beginning of December. Reportedly, the smartphone will have top-shelf hardware, such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, a 5.5-inch 1440p display, and a 16MP main camera among other bits of flagship-killing arsenal.

UPDATE: It looks like these photos are of the Koobee H2, another Chinese smartphone that has the same specs and looks.

"Psst, can we reserve an invite already?"

Lol, I see what you did there.

If they continue this silly "invite" system they have, I foresee another "WTF!?" scenario like the original OPO... Hopefully they learn.

Yeah, EVERYONE sees what he did there. It was pretty damned obvious.

Can't they do what Sony does and use a high end processor for their mini versions? Reserve the upper mid-range chip for mid-range phones... of course after their little stunt I wonder if OnePlus has the operating capacity to produce 2 lines of phones.

Mini??? Are U joking?

That thing has got even biger bezels than the One and it's probly the size of a LG G3. :P

If you want a decent phone at a modest price, with near top notch specs and efficient size, there is no escaping the LG G2 right now as they are selling below the 300€$ mark.
It's either that or go with a Chinese brand MTK6592/5 (and give up 64bit) or wait another month and get something with MTK6752.

Pretty solid specs, on a similar level as the 2nd generation Moto G, but a little more expensive. That 8MP front camera, though...wow.

I don't see how this on a similar level as the Moto G (2014). It has a mid-upper range 64-bit processor with a graphical prowess higher than that of the 800 & 801. The Moto G (2014) has a mid-range 32-bit processor that has been in use for almost 2 years. That alone separates them significantly.

I meant "similar level" as in size and price. I was a little off on the specs, I'll admit. Obviously the hardware is different, but in terms of value, it's on a similar level. Great performance and quality without having to pay big money. If I had the means (and an invite, if they decide to do that again), I'd pick this one up over the Moto G.

Look at that bottom bezel...it looks terrible.

I wish they'd get rid of the capacitive buttons. That bottom bezel is out of control.

Immersion mode really eliminates the need for capacitive buttons; you can still use the entire screen with Immersion mode.

"... the smartphone has a 5-inch display (how's that for mini?)"
Seriously?
Not only is the 1+1 bigger that this one, but it's also because a five inch display can be called a mini, especially in Asia.
I personally switched from the note 3 to the m8, and the normal screen is the only thing I miss. The five inch screen is just small
