Latest OnePlus 3 leak says base model will include 64GB of internal storage

Like clockwork, perennial leaker Evan Blass has released fresh information on the upcoming OnePlus 3.

According to Blass, the phone will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB of internal storage and a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera.

It will be interesting to see how OnePlus decides to justify a 1080p display once again. After all, if Blass’ report is accurate — and there’s little reason to believe it isn’t since it looks like the company is leaking this information directly to him — then this will be the second year in a row that OnePlus has decided against adding a QHD display to its flagship device.

On the other hand, it’s laudable when an OEM loads their device with ample internal storage. when Blass says “One Plus 3 basics” before listing some of the OnePlus 3’s specs, he seems to suggest all OnePlus 3 models with start with 64GB of internal storage. Given the fact OnePlus currently only sells a 64GB version of the OnePlus 2, and has done so for a number of months, a 64GB base model OnePlus 3 seems like a good bet.

Blass doesn’t mention other important specs like battery capacity, but past rumours have pointed to the OnePlus 3 including 3GB of RAM and 3,000mAh battery. The leaked render Blass shared last week also suggests the phone will feature a USB-C port and a front-facing fingerprint sensor.

Lastly, the screenshot Blass included with his tweet is interesting because it shows his OnePlus 3 running Android N. Android Authority speculates this might mean the OnePlus 3 will ship with Android N. Dare to dream, certainly, but this seems unlikely. At the very least, it suggests OnePlus is already working on a Android N version of its Oxygen OS skin.

OnePlus is expected to announce the OnePlus next month. The company plans to announce during a special virtual reality event. In an interview with CNET, OnePlus founder Carl Pei said the OnePlus 3 will launch sometime at the end of Q2 2016.
