“Never Settle.” So says the tagline for OnePlus, the smartphone company founded by former Oppo Vice President Pete Lau and Carl Pei, Oppo’s former International Markets Manager and Director of New Markets. OnePlus generated excitement for its lean and mean devices, with one of their models positioned as “The Flagship Killer.” The devices, powered by Cyanogen, have become a favorite among the Android die-hards. And this October, the company filed a registration for a new model, the “E1005.” The “E1005” is rumored to be the OnePlus 3, a mid-range model. Excitement is certainly buzzing in the air for the mystery device with the temporary model name, “OnePlus E1005.”
The “OnePlus E1005” is reportedly going to be an LTE phone and will be smaller than the OnePlus 2. It is also dubbed by the tech rumor mills as the “OnePlus Mini,” and may be released by the end of 2015.
These are the specs, as leaked by Venture Capital Post, which scoped its news via CrossMap, with some details from AndroidPolice:
Processor/Chipset: 2.2 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) SoC
GPU: PowerVR Series 6 (Rogue) G6200
OS: Possibly Android Oxygen OS
Internal Storage: 32 GB
Connectivity: GSM, LTE (bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8), WiFi b/g/n
Display: 5.0 inches Full HD display with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3
Cameras: Primary: 13 MP; Secondary: 4 MP
Battery: 3000/3100 mAh non-removable battery, with support for Quick Charge 2.0
Goodies: FM Radio, fingerprint sensors
In other news, leaks, accidentally published pages, and the like surround another OnePlus model that is set to be officially announced on Oct. 29. According to news around the web, OppoMart published a webpage with the full specs and even the price for the OnePlus X. The page was quickly taken down, however, in a swift damage-control move by OnePlus.
There is a bit of confusion surrounding the “OnePlus E1005”: Will this model be the OnePlus X set to be officially announced on Oct. 29, or is this a separate model altogether. The world has around 10 days before OnePlus can officially clear the air and dispel confusion.
Meanwhile, whether OnePlus is set to unveil one or two phones is hardly going to be an issue: OnePlus fans will rejoice, either way.
And for the uninitiated, this is what OnePlus says about itself: “OnePlus isn’t just a company, or a phone, or a brand. OnePlus is all of us, working together to build something amazing. Never Settle.”
Indeed. Never settle.
