Earlier this week we reported on some of the rumors surrounding a new OnePlus handset with a smaller display, dubbed by some as the OnePlus Mini. We first learned that OnePlus was interested in creating two handsets for 2015 in the beginning half of the year, but now this upcoming handset looks to have hit the FCC.

While some of juicier details were made confidential in the filing, a photo in the FCC filing does reveal a device that looks a bit smaller than the OnePlus 2, complete with a USB Type-C port and dual speakers on the bottom. Beyond that, the only other thing you can see in the image is the rear-facing camera. Unfortunately, that’s about all we can learn from the filing. Thankfully, the rumor mill can help fill in many of these gaps.

The next OnePlus handset is said to offer a 5-inch display and MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) SoC with 2GB RAM. Other specs include a 13MP Sony IMX258 (f/2.0) rear camera, 5MP front cam, a 3000 mAh battery, and perhaps even NFC technology baked in this go around. One remaining mystery is the phone’s name, though a new Weibo post from CEO Pete Lau might give us the answer to that as well.

Earlier today, Pete Lau posted up an image of what appears to be a running route around the city, but happens to make the shape of a nearly perfect X. While some might think this has absolutely no major significance, many believe it is a hype-generating tease that could be pointing to the name OnePlus X for the company’s next device. Given how OnePlus likes to use social media to generate attention, we’re certain it means something… even if it isn’t the name of their next phone.

So when might be we see the OnePlus X, OnePlus Mini, or whatever OnePlus ends up calling it? For now, it’s hard to say, but given that the year is coming to a close, OnePlus will need to act fairly quickly. This is especially true if they want to take advantage of holiday sales. What do you think, excited about the idea of a smaller, possibly cheaper mid-range OnePlus offering? Let us know what you think in the comments.
