OnePlus X / Mini gets showcased again in new images
Earlier on, GforGames came through with some interesting info pertaining to the OnePlus X / Mini. In that report, we heard that OnePlus may be plotting a device with a 1080p display and a Snapdragon 801 processor, among other features. Now, the very same publication has shared a series of images, giving us a closer look at what OnePlus has up its sleeve. 

There's reason to believe that the OnePlus X / OnePlus Mini are the same device under different names. Having recently brought us the flagship OnePlus 2, it'd be quite a turn up for the books if a further two handsets reached us in such quick succession. Having said that, the next OnePlus was supposedly going to deliver a flagship-esque experience with the MediaTek MT-6795T, but now appears to be settling on the Snapdragon 801. This indicates that either there are two devices floating around, or perhaps that there were, and OnePlus has since ditched the MediaTek offering. Right now, it's hard to call either way, with the GforGames report expressing some confusion despite having an informant familiar with OnePlus' plans.

The new report shares some images of a device that doesn't look as though it offers StyleSwap changeable covers, as was mentioned earlier on. This throws a little more weight behind the idea of two new handsets as opposed to one. As you'll notice, these images have been sourced from the TENAA database, which is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC. Since the actual FCC revealed some details and images of what looks to be the same device last week, perhaps an official announcement is just around the corner.

It was said that OnePlus might have something to showcase today, but that has yet to materialize. Indeed, the earlier report noted that OnePlus has no plans to reveal anything just yet, and will instead look to build up some excitement and anticipation. For now, we're left to play the waiting game. 

Take a look at the now-semi-official (albeit unidentified) OnePlus handset, and let us know what you think of its design in the comments.

Well I'll be damned! The back looks like Z compact series! OnePlus X would suit the phone better as it's nowhere near mini.

After all the pics from the back I was leery, but still hoping there was a fingerprint sensor with it. Now it looks like a no.

Why anyone would take design cues from the z3c is a mystery. One plus has gone from somewhat interesting to a waste of time in two handsets if this thing isn't just a cruel joke.

Snapdragon S801? no thanks, even for 150$ its not worth investing in 32 bit chip at this point, i would rather even get S615 or 6752, let alone X10.

The SN615 is s**te compared to the 801. Being 64bit doesn't help much when the performance sucks.

Agreed. Mid-tier phones should have the 801 imo

Yea, kinda....but i don't care, and yes the performance are far from sucking, there are big advantages on Android 5.0 + for 64 bit chips, but w/e, this is my pain, i like latest tech, even if inferior. I dont like to go back, phone with S801 at this point for me it worth at tops 100$. They could use the X10, which WIPES the floor with the S801.

Too bad even if I did like the phone (dont) I will never support the company. Bunch of idiots!

Looks like an interesting choice. I might get 2 of these for when my G2 and S2 finally die.

This smartphone looks great for the price. If nobody has seen it in hands here's a video: http:youtube.com/watch?v=gKdJaWFYVBU Looks like you can buy it without an invite?
