If you were a little disappointed by the cancellation of the Bamboo OnePlus One Style Swap cover you might be interested to hear that there is a chance that you can still get hold of the limited edition model.
As we reported a few days ago, although production of the Bamboo OPO cover has finished, the start-up did manage to produce enough covers for a limited edition run of the phone in Bamboo. The fact that this special edition was only officially available in China, doesn’t mean you can’t get hold of the phone and we are already seeing European based resellers announcing they will have small quantities of the phone.
Gizchina News of the week
Pricing won’t be cheap, with estimates coming in at 450 Euros for the 64GB device, but from our own experience the store selling them, Topresellerstore.it offers fast service and 24month warranty for peace of mind.
Another option would be to order the phone through a Chinese reseller, or even try to purchase a 3rd party Style Swap cover through Aliexpress or some other e-commerce site.[ GizChina.it ]
Sorry, but the originally idea of OnePlus was that the customer can by directly without feeding an expensive reseller. 🙁
strangly enough oppomart had the bamboo 64gb only (not a 16gb version) listed for quite a while ,even before the news about one plus discontinuing the bamboo, while not having the backcase sold seperatly and the price was a bit too much, after the news i understood why it was so much, atm the smallest price i found is 415e ,almost 60e for a backcase…that we know it might have problems. no thanks one plus i will pass ,both your phone and the case
I wanted the hardwood back cover it looked so good. Hopefully another company takes this idea and rolls with it I really don’t understand why no other company is doing something like this.
actually they are, xiaomi when announced the mi4 they announced that they would make different covers even bamboo/wood/denim etc, and also we saw a lenovo bamboo phone dont remember the name.
i wish xiaomi steps up already, they havent even taken out the black model ,all you can order is the white 16gb/64gb .
