StyleSwap covers for the OnePlus One are headed to India and the company has already started teasing their arrival through social media. And the new move is certainly something no one expected mainly since the premium cases for the flagship killer smartphone were killed off long ago.
A post on the OnePlus India Facebook page reads ‘On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.’ And an image of the phone with StyleSwap cover is also embedded showing the bamboo case and the words ‘Guess what is coming.’
This is clearly pointing to the premium customization option. StyleSwap covers for the OnePlus One were announced over a year back, but never made it to the market. The company decided to pull the plug on the project stating that the cases didn’t meet their expectations and failed to deliver an acceptable level of quality.
For OnePlus to bring these cases to India, it might have stock leftover of the units it made. Or it could even be making the backdoors in limited numbers since it did face technical difficulties in mass producing them. And as the teaser image depicts, we wouldn’t expect any other option apart from bamboo.
OnePlus One specs recap:
– Android Lollipop (version 5.1 update in the works)
– 5.5-inch 1080p display, Gorilla Glass 3 panel
– 3GB RAM, 16GB and 64GB storage options

The company hasn’t revealed anything concrete about the OnePlus One StyleSwap covers for the Indian market as yet, but we expect to see them arrive in limited quantities and cost a premium.
