Update: Carl Pei ended the OnePlus 3 Mini rumors on Twitter quoting, “No.
#rumorshutdown“. It also validates our skepticism. The original article follows.
OnePlus 3 is already selling well in most markets. Sounds good, however company has paused sales of OP3 in about 24 countries for a month. This is due to lack of inventory and high demand.
Today an unknown smartphone has been benchmarked at GFXBench. Its specifications are somewhat similar to OnePlus 3 but with a smaller display, so we can assume the device could very well be OnePlus 3 Mini. There is no guarantee though. It could be an all-together a different phone.
This unknown smartphone (assumed OnePlus 3 Mini) runs on Android 6.0.1 based Cyanogen OS and sports 4.6-Inch 1080p display with 5-point multi-touch support. Other specifications are same as Oneplus 3 like 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, Adreno 530 GPU, 6GB RAM and 64GB on board storage.
The device is said to have 16MP main camera with LED Flash, Auto Focus, HDR and records 4K videos as well. On the front is 5MP selfie snapper. It also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and comes with accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity, pedometer and compass.
If this unknown phone listed at GFXBench is indeed OnePlus 3 Mini. We expect to see it at TENNA and FCC for certifications soon enough. Till then, take the story as a spicy treat.
