With the success of the OnePlus 3, many were expecting the company to release a OnePlus 3 Mini smartphone. Sadly, that hope has been shattered by recent statements from the company?s CEO.
The OnePlus 3 Mini has been rumored for several months now. Everyone have been speculating that the company will be releasing a Mini version of their popular smartphone. Unfortunately, Carl Pei, the CEO of OnePlus, has revealed that the company will not be releasing it anytime soon.
According to Phone Arena, the statement was given by Pei via his Twitter account in response to users asking about the OnePlus 3 Mini. His simple statement which destroyed the hopes of countless tech junkies was ?No. #rumorshutdown?. This is certainly as clear a statement as the company can give regarding the OnePlus 3 Mini and it definitely ruined the day of many OnePlus fans.
Earlier, the hopes of many Android smartphone fans that a OnePlus 3 Mini would be releasing were raised when specs of the alleged phone surfaced online. From there, countless tech insiders continued to fan the flames by writing features about the supposed phone. The specs were amazing and would certainly make any fan excited. Unfortunately, it turned out that the specs were too good to be true.
According to the specs, the OnePlus 3 Mini was said to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 6GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter along with 64GB of internal storage. Certainly the rumored smartphone, which was expected to be smaller in size than the OnePlus 3, has the makings of being another ?Flagship Killer?. All hope of a small version of the OnePlus 3 having those specs though have been destroyed by Pei with a single tweet.
While Pei has said that the company will not make a OnePlus 3 Mini, things may still change and he could surprise everyone later on. For now, all that Android fans can hope for is that Pei will have a change of heart in time for a potential OnePlus 4 Mini sometime next year.
