It looks like the rumors that OnePlus is working on a budget smartphone may be true as a listing on TENAA has leaked online.
The TENAA listing shows a device with model number E1001 that features a 5-inch display, a 2450mAh battery, dual SIM dual standby support, and 4G TD-LTE / LTE FDD connectivity. The pictures included in the listing shows a simple black device with the OnePlus logo on the rear and what looks like a 2.5D glass panel in the front.
According to a previous leak, the Oneplus X E1001 will feature a 5-inch full HD 1080p display, a 1.9GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a USB Type-C interface. It’s also been rumored that OnePlus plans to price the new device at around 999 Yuan making it very affordable and competitive.
This will be the first time OnePlus will be releasing more than one device within a single year. The company must be confident that it has built enough reputation to release another device in a different price bracket. We’ll just have to wait for the company to make an official announcement to confirm all this information.
