Intrigued by the OnePlus 2, but want something a little smaller? It looks like OnePlus has something in the works for you, as a 2 Mini model appeared on the website for TENAA, the Chinese regulatory agency that is roughly equivalent to the FCC in the US. This means it was approved in much the same way that the FCC certifies all cell phones, but we are lucky enough to get far more detailed information, including pictures. It's worth mentioning that only secondary sources have used the 2 Mini name for the device in question, the TENAA calls it "E1000."
Here is a quick rundown of the specs provided:
140mm x 69mm x 6.9mm
4.99", 1080p AMOLED
16GB (microSD expandable up to 128GB)
13MP (rear), 8MP (front)
Quad-core, 2.0 GHz
A quick note: PhoneArena states that the device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, but I don't see any direct evidence of that on the TENAA website. Either way, the specs above suggest a fairly capable phone that isn't exactly small at 5 inches.
Perhaps more interesting is another phone, this one by Oppo, that appeared on the same day with near-identical specs and appearance. Take a look for yourself:
Here's a view from the front:
I don't know about you, but I think I just might see a connection here! Only time will tell what the OnePlus device will be called and where its price point will be. There is a decent chance that the Oppo equivalent is not sold in some western markets.
