A new OnePlus smartphone has just reached the FCC and it appears to be the anticipated OnePlus Mini. The smartphone is likely to be launched in the coming days to offer OnePlus fans an affordable alternative to the recently launched OnePlus 2.

The live image on the FCC site shows the rear side of the new OnePlus smartphone. It suggests that the smartphone has an aluminium frame, similar to the OnePlus 2 but comes with a flat, plastic back panel. The smartphone appears to have two loudspeaker grills in a design similar to the iPhone 5s and there is apparently a microUSB port instead of a USB-C port on the OnePlus 2.

The image also suggests that the OnePlus Mini has a camera sensor on the rear along with an LED flash. Besides, the smartphone appears to have dual-SIM support and a non-removable battery pack.

The FCC listing does not reveal any details about the specifications of the new OnePlus smartphone but an earlier report leaked most of the key OnePlus Mini specifications. The report claims that the smartphone will feature a 5in display with 1920 x 1080 pixels (full-HD) resolution and will be powered by a 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 processor. The smartphone is expected to come with Android 5.1 Lollipop-based OxygenOS out of the box.

The OnePlus Mini is rumoured to be launched through the company's site with a price tag of $250 (£165). The price is certainly lower than the £239 price of the OnePlus 2.
