OnePlus 2 StyleSwap covers could include options like rosewood, bamboo, and leather
Less than two weeks before it will officially announce the OnePlus 2, OnePlus is now asking fans about what kind of optional StyleSwap covers they'd want to see available alongside the upcoming smartphone. According to the company, "a few" covers are already in the works, but more suggestions are needed. Thus, the official OnePlus forum is hosting a poll which allows registered users to vote for their favorite StyleSwap cover materials: bamboo, ceramic, denim, leather, mother-of-pearl, nylon, quartz, or rosewood.

We assume that the options that are getting the highest number of votes (currently including rosewood, bamboo, and leather) will be available to buy at some point. But we'll see what happens.

The OnePlus One also had StyleSwap covers (one of them is pictured above), but they weren't perfect, so OnePlus stopped producing them not long after launch. The company said that the covers for the new OnePlus 2 would be improved.

The OnePlus 2 will likely be available to order shortly after its announcement (July 27). Prices for the smartphone will start at under $450, while a StyleSwap cover could cost $50 (just like those released for the OnePlus One).

If you're planning to buy a OnePlus 2, what type of StyleSwap cover would you get?

Doesnt matter how they promote this. If it is thru invite system to get the OnePlus 2, then its not worth even trying to get it.

Yep, they chose to use a modern superior material, despite the hits they will take from the tech press for doing so. Good for them for standing up for consumers and producing a superior product.

I don't care for metal or glass honestly. I think their Sandstone and Silk are already the best on the market. I only wish other OEM's would use the same materials instead of glossy plastics or fake metal brushes.

OnePlus One...2nd act? Swap covers were promised LAST time, never came. OnePlus One was said to have stereo speakers. Had TWIN speakers, MONO. They had a lot of issue with the One...yellow(ish) screen, some went away, some didn't. Some were dead out of the box, others no sound, buttons missing, accessories missing. Then, support? NOPE, pretty much NON existent. The invite system was a JOKE at best because they didn't have the capital to build enough to meet the demand, using the "chinese way" of producting products. Get enough seed money to build a batch, offer it for sale, take that money, remove any profit, buy another batch of materials, make another batch of devices, sell them, and so on. Where OnePlus got caught flat footed was building a device, on paper that (at the time) had premium specs, for pretty much a no profit price, and not thinking that there would be the demand, that came along. IF you believe OnePlus, saying that the initial build of the 2, will have 30-50 times available, when it goes on sale, and their initial build of the OnePlus One, was around 5,000, then, like I said, if you believe OnePlus, 250,000 to 500,000 devices should "help" stem the anger this time. This is of course predicated, that you believe OnePlus. I'm from Missouri, you have to SHOW ME first.

All I want is carbon fiber casing, and I'm set.
