The benchmarking site has suggested two variants of the device, one with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM, and the other with 32GB internal memory and 4GB RAM. The flagship device has been spotted with Full HD 1080p screen resolution and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. 

According to reports that have surfaced so far, OnePlus 3 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display with 1,920x1,080 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and run CyanogenOS based Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
