OnePlus Mini leak suggests it's not small - but still impressive

OnePlus MiniRumours of the OnePlus Mini have been growing ever since the company's CEO claimed a new phone would be released by the end of the year – and the latest spec leak looks quite impressive.
According to sources speaking with reliable site GForGames, the OnePlus Mini features a new MediaTek Helio X10 system-on-chip with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage with microSD support.
The phone has a smaller display than the OnePlus 2 at 5-inch (with a 1080p resolution), meaning it isn't exactly the miniature device we were expecting to see from the company.

Not all that small

That's all powered by a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 capabilities on board through the USB Type-C connector. All the normal connectivity options you'd expect such as Bluetooth 4.1 will also be here as well.
OnePlus seems to have also reversed its decision to drop NFC connectivity and will include it on the Mini ready to use Android Pay on the phone.
There will also be a dual-camera setup with a 13MP sensor capable of filming in 4K and having a dual-tone LED flash. On the front there's also a 5MP selfie camera.
All of this should be taken with a pinch of salt, however – the source claims the specs come from a prototype device, meaning there's a chance things could change at some stage. Now we just have to wait and see whether OnePlus can get it out before the end of the year.
