OnePlus 2 Mini appears to be in the works according to benchmarks
OnePlus has been slowly expanding their device lineup, and it looks like it may have another phone on the way. This time, it may even be a device aimed at those who think screens don't need to be too big. There isn't a lot of info to go on, but a new device from OnePlus has surfaced in GeekBench scan history. Benchmarking data like this is ranked lower on the rumor credibility scale because it is relatively easy to spoof, but that doesn't mean all of the data is false.

In this case, it sounds plausible at least. The OnePlus device listed would include a 4.6-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 810 SoC, potentially 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, and Android 5.1.1. There are one oddity in the data though: the phone lists as not having HDR capability. Also, the device is listed as not having NFC, which is reasonable given that OnePlus did leave that out of the OnePlus 2 as well. 

Overall, it sounds like OnePlus is planning something of a "mini" version of its high-end OnePlus 2, which features essentially the same specs but with a 5.5-inch display.

What do you all think? Would you be interested in a full-spec device with a sub-5-inch display? Sound off in the comments?

It looks like it has underclocked CPU to 1,7 GHz,normal SD 810 got 1,96 GHz.

This is awesome despite 810, I hope that after Apple eventually launches 6c and this OP2 Mini will be released more OEMs will jump on the boat. Market got incredibly boring and saturated with phablets and there is still huge potential in smaller devices

YES YES YES Depending on camera quality. I ended up buying my wife an iPhone because she requires a speedy phone with great camera that doesn't that is a "mini". Xperia Z5 Compact is too much money right now. Assuming this had a great camera and is reasonably priced as all the OnePluseOne's have been I would have opted for this instead. I believe this is a huge untapped market.

They better use a snapdragon 820 v2.1, and much better software on release compared to the OPX. They don't reaaaly need a mini tho

#%@& the "mini" moniker, this would be a Compact, ala Sony. Kinda weird though that they'd dilute their own brand with 2 somewhat similar devices with this one and the X. I'll believe it when I see it.

wait for 815 or 818 they could probably be the best chipsets of the year, for those who would not want 820
