The leak machine is keeping us on our feet today — first with Microsoft Band 2 renders, and now with new leaks via GizmoChina purporting to show the upcoming “OnePlus X”.

Shenzhen-based smartphone upstart OnePlus took the wraps off its $389 second-generation device, the OnePlus 2, in July. We did a full review here, and even reported last month how new British smartphone maker Wileyfox wants to be the OnePlus of Europe.

As to the OnePlus X, details are still slim, though the company’s chief executive, Carl Pei, did already confirm the new device last month.

“There’s going to be a second phone this year, before the end of the year. Hopefully for Christmas. It may or may not be [higher spec’d than the OnePlus 2],” Pei said in an interview with USA Today.

While GizmoChina has watermarked the renders as its own, it cites the source as China’s popular microblogging site Weibo, the same place we saw the recent leaks of Samsung’s foldable “Project Valley” smartphone.

It appears that the back of the OnePlus X sports a fingerprint sensor and dual camera, as well as dual speaker grills at the bottom. But for now, that’s pretty much all we have to go on. It’s not yet clear what the screen size or internals will measure in at.

Check out the two leaked renders below:
