More info is popping up on the OnePlus One smartphone from overseas, as the company is actually feeding into the hypebeast machine instead of running from it. Announced this morning are swappable backsides, ones which will come in a variety of different textures/materials and colors. It will be much like the Moto X, except they are replaceable by users, and they won’t be just colors. 

As stated in the company’s forum post, where they do most of their announcements, the backs not only help protect your device, but will bring a flavor of personality to them. The backs confirmed so far are made of Bamboo, Denim, Kevlar, Sandstone, and Silk.

To ensure the best look, feel, and level of protection, these covers will actually be made with their own respective materials (not silk or sandstone though). Are you someone that drops your phone often? Why not get a tough, rugged Kevlar back cover for protection and durability? Do you want the feel of something soft and natural? How about an eye-catching, elegant bamboo back cover? Want a nice texture that feels like it will never slip out of your fingers? The known grit and feel that denim offers may be what you’re looking for.


Specs confirmed for the OnePlus One by the company are as follows.


  • Customized version of CyanogenMod
  • Sub $400 price tag
  • 5.5″ 1080p display
  • 3100mAh battery,
  • 13mp Sony Exmor camera
  • Snapdragon 800 CPU
  • Voice wakeup capabilities
  • Global LTE
  • 16/64GB versions

We must say, this device is becoming more and more attractive as the days pass.
