OnePlus One visits the FCC, microSD card support revealed in User Manual
A few days ago, the OnePlus One was approved by the FCC, which revealed the smartphone’s User Manual - and this mentions that the handset supports microSD cards up to 32GB. That’s great news for customers who are looking to buy the 16GB version of the device.
The OnePlus One that passed the FCC tests comes with LTE bands 4 and 17, thus it will be compatible with AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s 4G LTE networks. Of course, neither of the carriers will be selling the handset, because OnePlus wants to commercialize it directly, unlocked and without the involvement of carriers and retailers.
If you haven’t heard yet, the OnePlus One will be really cheap, despite the fact that it packs lots of high-end features (including a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear camera). The 16GB model costs $299, while the 64GB variant is priced at $349. Both should be available starting late May - early June in lots of markets around the world, including the US.

Dang... If offered by my carrier, I'm conflicted with a decision of choosing the 635 or this. I'm ready to try a new OS but this phone is pretty sweet. I'm currently using an android device.

This is Android. It's just a Rom custom that has turned into a UI. It's very close to stock Android. Think Nexus but with themes custom lock screens and more. You can also root it without voiding your warranty.

It will not be offered by any carrier.
They are gonna sell it directly

Well that's a relief,,. Even tho there's a 64GB model
5. peace247 (Posts: 75; Member since: 26 Apr 2014)
Any chances that it will come to India.
Or i can order it somehow. Please rply

Not initially at any rate. Maybe at a later date.

Even if it gets released in India u cant find hardware support for this phone...
So i suggest u buy something else...
36. phenomdark27 (Posts: 1; Member since: 15 May 2014)
and what exactly do you mean by hardware support, that cant be found in india??
6. jellmoo (Posts: 625; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
This seems... Odd... Why would they not be advertising this and adding it on the spec sheet on the OnePlus web site? Also, a max 32GB storage is more than a little weird these days.
I certainly hope it's real, if it is that would be amazing, but I'm a little skeptical about it.
15. middlehead (Posts: 6; Member since: 12 May 2014)
If it really does max at 32GB, I'd bet it's one of the things they skimped on to keep the price down. Buy an older chipset that the supplier has inventory stacked up of instead of getting the newest revision that they have to build.

It was either this or the S5/S5 Prime (KQ) but this might have clinched it for me.

This is going to make a decent back up phone to my next phone.

Guys, this may be a pre-production model that's not going to be brought to users.
14. networkdood (Posts: 6250; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
I will be shocked if the final production model devices actually allow us to use a microSD card. At any rate, you will have 64GB, minus the pre installed software, with the sandstone black model, which is more than enough space for most people. Extra space is always appreciated, though.

This may seem obvious, but where is the microSD slot? I have watched and read multiple reviews and not one single reviewer mentioned a microSD slot. They showed the back cover off and never mentioned a microSD card slot. You would have to think that someone would have noticed by now. I know they have early builds of the device, but you would think that something like that would not get added on at the last moment. Plus they have also stated, that thins version of the device would not have microSD support. This seems strange to me.

could be under the back cover above the battery?

With superb specs and running CM10 this would be like smooth vanilla android
Great value but the oppo7 has the edge with premium materials
23. 0xFFFF (Posts: 2045; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
The Find 7a is a decent phone, but is only 2GB RAM and has notably poor headphone output (as reviewed by GSM Arena).
25. Arte-8800 (Posts: 3086; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
The find7 not the 7a
The 7 has a better greater specs
29. 0xFFFF (Posts: 2045; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
I wasn't able to find out if the headphone quality (specifically the channel separation) is as poor on the 7 as it is on the 7a.
True, the 7 does have the better screen and 3GB RAM, a true flagship phone.

64GB black will be my choice. Can't wait to see this sexy beast!
21. Adrian38 (Posts: 105; Member since: 05 Nov 2012)
I don't see how this can be true when the SD slot has NEVER been mentioned. It's probably a mistake. Or maybe it's just for the 16GB model?
24. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 300; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
why are specs like this unheard of on a "smaller" sized phone? 4.5/4.7..... why not? Even the HTC M8.... and i thought the M7 was giant when i first got it...
28. Lauticol (Posts: 179; Member since: 25 Jun 2011)
I want a white 64Gb one! But I would like to know if this comes with the bootloader unlocked!
30. 0xFFFF (Posts: 2045; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
As the company encourages custom ROMs, I would think that the bootloader is unlocked.
31. shamatuu (Posts: 105; Member since: 02 Nov 2011)
the 805 processors is around the corner so i don't see why pick this up when at least 3 or 4 phones are coming out in 4 month with 805 processors and QHD displays.
34. 0xFFFF (Posts: 2045; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
To me, it's a matter of what I am getting for my money. For $350, I get a 64GB phone that will do whatever I need.
I do miss out on the QHD screen, but I figure OnePlus will offer something like that eventually, so I can buy that when it's available. So let's say I buy the OnePlus One QHD model, say, for $450.
So for $800, I get TWO awesome 64GB phones, one FHD, one QHD.
This is just a tad more than the $700 I would spend to get an HTC One M8 today -- with 32GB and a crappy 4MP camera.
Hence I am happy to get the OnePlus One 64GB now and wait for the company to put out a QHD phone sometime later.

Its a mistake. I've seen this before. As a matter of fact I bought an Archos 28 a few years ago and it said it had a microSD card slot on it in the manual, but on the actual device it was no where to be found. They should fix that before they start sending out devices.
33. gurjashan (Posts: 3; Member since: 09 May 2014)
micro sd would be a great + to this beast......
but even if its missing the 64gb model costs only $349.....a fu###ng awesome price to features ratio by one+...

Wish they would kill the stupid marketing idea you know what Nintendo did with the wii make availability bad to trump up interest in it.
