Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus, which has reached quite a level of popularity among hardcore Android users, is about to unveil its third “flagship killer,” a phone that appeared in countless rumors leading up to its June launch. A new report brings more details about the phone’s specs, including one feature Apple should definitely copy for the upcoming iPhone 7.

Serial leaker Evan Blass, who’s been fairly accurate with his leaks in the past listed in a tweet the main features of the upcoming basic OnePlus 3 version – the company, is rumored to have at least two distinct OnePlus 3 models.

“OnePlus 3 basics: 5.5-inch 1080p, Snapdragon 820, 64GB storage, 16MP rear camera, NFC,” Blass wrote on Twitter, posting a picture that shows the device running an Android N preview build.

Some of these specs have already appeared in benchmark leaks, but what’s interesting about the “basic” OnePlus 3 is that it’ll pack 64GB of built-in storage that should be plenty for most Android users. Previous reports said the cheapest OnePlus 3 will have 32GB of storage.

Apple, meanwhile, stuck with 16GB as the entry-level memory option for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE. No matter how hard Apple might defend its choice, 16GB of storage is simply not good enough for a flagship device like the iPhone, especially when competitors are seriously upping their game in the storage department.

Naturally, there’s no way to confirm the OnePlus 3 specs just yet, but the Chinese smartphone vendor is said to take the wraps off the OnePlus 3 flagship soon. According to a chat transcript between a customer and a OnePlus representative, the OnePlus will be unveiled on June 14th during a VR-focused event.
