OnePlus has begun teasing the launch of a new product for October 29th, with the tag line #PowerfullyBeautiful. Going by the teaser image, the company is preparing to announce its OnePlus X smartphone.
According to the company’s Twitter account, OnePlus will be heading to London for its next launch event. A similar X shape was used in the teaser for an Indian focused event that took place earlier this week, so we could be looking at a global release for this upcoming handset.

Shortly after the teaser popped up, a phone known as the OnePlus Mini was accidently posted on the Amazon India website, complete with a pretty much full list of specifications.
The next OnePlus smartphone looks to be a mid-ranger. The handset features a 5-inch 1080p display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and Synaptics’ ClearForce Technology. The listing also includes an octa-core MediaTek MT6795 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 2,450mAh battery. The phone is said to be powered by the Oxygen 3.0 OS, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Other rumors pin the smartphone’s camera on a 13 megapixel pixel sensor powered by a Sony IMX258, which features phase detection auto focus technology but will lack optical image stabilization. IP67 certification, NFC, FM radio, an IR blaster, front facing speakers, and removable StyleSwap covered are also expected to feature with the OnePlus X, giving it plenty of extras to boast about.
There are still a couple of weeks to wait until the official unveiling, so these specifications may not be completely accurate. Still, what do you think about the OnePlus X / Mini?
