Style Swap rear covers, including bamboo, no longer in production for the OnePlus One
Because of production problems, like the ones related to issues with the bamboo rear covers for the OnePlus One, the "StyleSwap" covers offered as accessories for the flagship handset, have been discontinued. As it is, only a few bamboo specimens were able to meet the high QC standards that the manufacturer demanded. OnePlus was charging $49 for the bamboo back.

While production of the bamboo rear cover accessory has been stopped, the few pieces that meet QC standards will still be offered with a set of instructions for safe installation, so as not to damage the phone, cover or battery. According to OnePlus, the bamboo backs that will be offered look "amazing." In addition, OnePlus plans on offering limited edition phones with a back made of kevlar or denim.

The manufacturer did apologize for the situation, and said that it is all part of the learning process that will help them make the OnePlus Two next year, without suffering through the same mistakes.
