Not long ago, OnePlus confirmed that a brand new smartphone will be announced on Oct. 12. Many rumors were floating around stating that the handset is "OnePlus Mini." But now, a new report suggests that the upcoming smartphone is likely to be called the "OnePlus X." In addition, key configuration details and photos of the device have also been revealed.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reportedly approved a new OnePlus handset. The device has been tied to the model name "One E1005" and two photos have also been uploaded. According to Phone Arena, the new handset is 139 mm in height, which translates to a possible display size of 5.0-inch. According to the report, this is apparently the exact dimension of the rumored "OnePlus X."
The leaked images also come with a company logo on the rear of the device, alongside the camera unit and an LED flash. Other noticeable features include a microUSB port and dual speakers that are located at the tail-end of the device. The front side of the OnePlus handset apparently follows the synonymous simple design philosophy of the company. However, Phone Scoop said that the new phone is not a replica of the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 handsets. Going by the images, the handset comes with curved edges.
Under the hood, the FCC report also said that the device with model name “One E1005” will come powered by a processor running at 1.9 GHz. The OnePlus X will also support standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, FM Radio and LTE. On the software end, the new device is believed to run the Oxygen OS, which is the forked version of Google’s Android. This OS was first introduced in the OnePlus 2.
The entire configuration of the device is also expected to be held together and powered by a modest 2,450 mAh battery unit. However, readers should note that the OnePlus X specifications or the device name has not been confirmed by the Chinese tech startup yet.
