Could There Be A 4.6 OnePlus 3 Mini, Finally? [UPDATE: No.]

Update: Apparently, the rumor is false, as evidenced by a tweet from company co-founder Carl Pei. Original article follows.

A mini version of the OnePlus 2 was rumored throughout its existence, and instead the OnePlus X was born, which wasn't exactly the same thing. Mini flagship lovers have been left out in the crecent completely after Sony scrapped the Z-series and the Xperia Z5 Compact is the last one to cater to that demographic (plus the iPhone SE, but that's a different small beast).

Well, OnePlus might be filling that niche after all, if this recent GFXBench listing is any indication. A 4.6-inch FullHD display is enough to capture mini fans' attention, and the Snapdragon 820 plus 6GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) should acquire them drooling. The 64GB of storage (53GB left to the user, apparently) sound pretty fine too.

Why would the 'unknown' be a OnePlus device, you ask? The clues are in the 'INVALID CyanogenMod' Operating System (OS) - a remnant of time past, when the two companies worked together on the OnePlus One. It's not just that, though, the 16MP primary capturing camera resolution, (4,640 x 3,480 pixels, precisely) is the same as the one on the current OnePlus 3.

Of course the road from a benchimprint listing to a working retail device is long and rocky, but one could only hope.
