OnePlus has taken a very different approach with its One CyanogenMod based smartphone. Instead of keeping all of the development details behind closed doors, the company shares the latest progress with others through its forums. The latest part of the phone being discussed is its cover accessories.
Just so you know, there are absolutely no details about the smartphone’s design. But founder Pete Lau has shared the company’s plans of premium covers for the OnePlus One handset called StyleSwap. The OEM will be walking down the same path as Motorola by offering cases made from various materials including silk, sandstone, denim, bamboo and Kevlar. And apart from the first and second options, the rest of them will be made from the said materials and not substitutes.

The main purpose of this is to deliver an authentic look and feel as well as high level of protection. By the looks of things, more options could be added to the lineup at launch. Just a couple of days back, the company revealed that the OnePlus One will have a 13MP Sony Exmor IMX214 snapper which is the same one found on the Oppo Find 7. The snapper will be able to capture 4K videos and 120fps clips for slow motion playback. The phone will also have a 5MP front lens.
Here are the rest of the specifications:
– 2.3GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor
– 5.5-inch 1080p display
– 13MP rear camera, 5MP front lens
– 3100mAh battery
Even with so much information out in the open, there’s a long way to go before the OnePlus One makes its debut. The company plans to launch the phone by the end of Q2.
