OnePlus One teaser hints at a metal back for the phone

OnePlus One teaser hints at a metal back for the phone
An teaser posted by OnePlus on its Weibo page, shows the periodic table with the company slogan "Never Settle" on top. On bottom, it says 10:00AM. That just might add up to an announcement coming from OnePlus tomorrow at 10am Shenzhen time, during which the company could announce a new premium back cover for the OnePlus One.

Call it a hunch, but it would make sense if the material of this possible new back cover was one of the materials listed in the table. We know it is not going to be helium or rutherfordium, but that still leaves quite a few choices including aluminum. Currently, OnePlus offers a bamboo back cover for $49. But production problems forced the manufacturer to stop producing the StyleSwap covers and the company is merely selling off remaining inventory.

Actually, the periodic table could mean something else entirely. As soon as we know what OnePlus has in mind, we will pass the news along to you. 10am in Shenzhen is 9pm EST in the U.S. Check in early and often!
