First, they changed the game with the OnePlus One. Then, they kept a good thing going with the OnePlus 2 and went even cheaper with the OnePlus X. After that, for some inexplicable reason, they got into the iPhone case market. What’s next? It looks like a new OnePlus smartphone is in the works and it could be an upgraded version of the OnePlus X, which we’ll call the OnePlus X Plus, for presumably the same amount of money.

Making its way through TENAA, which is effectively the FCC of China, this new phone is being seen with both Oppo and OnePlus branding. According to the listing on the website, this yet unnamed device has much the same specs as the current OnePlus X. There’s 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD expansion, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, LTE, and a 4.99-inch 1080p display. The only real difference is the processor.

Rather than running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC, this “OnePlus X Plus” goes up a notch to the Snapdragon 810, clocked at 2GHz. Remember that the Snapdragon 810 is powering the OnePlus 2, which is now available without an invite, and it’s assumed that the upcoming OnePlus 3 will get the newer Snapdragon 820 processor instead.

Is This the OnePlus X Plus or the OnePlus 2 Mini?

So, this could be an upgraded OnePlus X Plus, keeping everything the same except for the better processor. Or, if we are to believe a leak by way of GFXBench earlier this month, an alternate version could be in the works with a smaller 4.6-inch 1080p display, along with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 12MP camera. Given the smaller display, this could be a OnePlus 2 Mini or even a OnePlus X mini, depending on how the company wants to frame it.

In any case, if this new smartphone is getting fondled and certified by TENAA, it shouldn’t be too long before we start hearing something a little more official. Let’s just hope it’s not a China-exclusive handset. The rest of the world wants some more OnePlus love too.
