OnePlus Mini gets listed by Amazon India, specs outed once more
Over the past few days we’ve seen the upcoming OnePlus Mini stopping by the FCC as well as getting certified in China by TENAA. And earlier today the handset has been inadvertently listed by Amazon’s Indian arm. The retailer has since taken down the listing, realizing its mistake, but some enterprising individuals were able to capture a screenshot of the product page thankfully.
Although this doesn’t give us a new picture of the OnePlus Mini, it does first of all confirm that name – so it’s not going to be called OnePlus X after all. Next up, Amazon also helpfully lists the phone’s specs, most of which have been rumored before at one time or another. Still, it’s good to get one more confirmation for these.
So, the OnePlus Mini will apparently come with a 5-inch 1080p touchscreen, one that will feature Synaptics’ ClearForce technology (basically making the display pressure-sensitive – think Apple’s 3D Touch). The panel will be covered with Gorilla Glass 3.
The MediaTek MT6795 chipset will run things, better known as the Helio X10, and it comes with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and a PowerVR G6200 GPU. Some past leaks talked about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 replacing it, keep that in mind.
Moving on, 2GB of RAM is in tow, and a 2,450 mAh battery keeps the phone juiced up. Interestingly, the OnePlus Mini is said to be launching with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board, courtesy of the Chinese company’s own Oxygen OS 3.0. Depending on when exactly this handset gets released that could make it one of the first non-Nexus devices to run the latest version of Android from day one.
The metal frame that we’ve seen in the leaked pictures is confirmed too, and it’s said to come with Side Touch functionality, which sounds intriguing. Sadly, there’s a mention of “invite-only” on the product page, so it looks like OnePlus isn’t ready to give up on its much-hated device release system.
