The Shenzhen based company has been busy cooking up something since Carl Pei went on the record saying that the X/Mini will arrive in time for Christmas. Yet, information still seems to be up in the air, from an earlier rumour of a MediaTek chipset, to it apparently features a Snapdragon 801. In timely fashion, three certification organisations have given OnePlus the go-ahead; SIRIM, TENAA and the FCC.
Late last week, the OnePlus E1003 showed itself on SIRIM; divulging little to nothing – SIM setup, Wi-Fi and cellular band support details. Dubbed the “X” from the Shenzhen based manufacturer, Carl Pei stated that this new smartphone would be the company’s take on a beautifully designed device, rather than its usual “Flagship Killer” tune. But from the photos we’ve seen, it’s safe to say that Mr Pei is slowly veering into the realm of delusion.
Taking some heat away from OnePlus’ inability to supply enough of their OnePlus 2, a new device has been spotted on the SIRIM database as E1003. This comes 2 months after Carl Pei was quoted on USA Today that he had a hard time choosing between the (possible) OnePlus X/mini and the OnePlus 2. OnePlus’ newest smartphone is apparently its take on a more aesthetically pleasing product, not its usual “Flagship Killer” motive.
OnePlus will be announcing another device before the year is out and this is looking like an affordable compact device. Dubbed as the OnePlus mini, it is said that it would be aesthetically focused instead of having top notch specs like the OnePlus 2.
