OnePlus One teaser hints at a metal back for the phone

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!

Aren't they already made from unobtainium?

About a week ago, I was in the Oneplus Store in the Solana shopping center in Beijing. The bamboo covers were hanging on the wall, and you could buy a new Oneplus with the bamboo cover fitted for CNY 2599,-. I am not sure about the remaining inventory. What is so hard to get here in Europe is sold off the shelf in China.

They should focus on creating a working phone..... Their phone has too much hardware and software problems...

Is 2015 the year of slippery metal backing? What's with phone manufacturers today making their new phones slippery? Can't they make a design that will improve people's grip without having the need to buy ugly rubber cases?
