That is why certain smartphone companies prefer to sell their wares unlocked and directly to consumers. But even though carrier subsidies are receiving a lot of criticism these days, the allure of not paying the full price upfront is still strong.

There might be a OnePlus 2 Mini, says benchmark sighting

It seems that OnePlus might not yet be done with its "in between" smartphone models.
