Popular Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has reportedly confirmed the launch of a new device this month-end.

OnePlus on Twitter has teased fans that the company will announce something 'Powerfully Beautiful' on 29 October in London.

The teaser shows two neon-light poles forming the alphabet X, hinting that the rumoured OnePlus X, a mid-range version of the flagship OnePlus 2, might be unveiled in October-end.

Reports are coming that the company will also be hosting events in 5 other cities including New Delhi (India) and New York City (USA).

The news comes just hours after the Amazon India accidentally listed the un-released OnePlus Mini revealing its key features. There is a bit of confusion over the upcoming OnePlus' phone moniker, which is likely to be resolved only after official launch later this month.
