You’ll soon be able to purchase OnePlus One StyleSwap Bamboo covers (if you’re lucky)

It is really difficult to stop hearing, and some times, stop talking about the OnePlus phenomenon. The less than a year old company made a truly wonderful smartphone, offered it for less than U$400 to make waves in the smartphone industry. However, there have been more controversies about OnePlus than the company would’ve liked, which is a bit of shame.

Recently, OnePlus announced that it would no longer be making the previously-promised StyleSwap covers. These would replace the Silk White or Sandstone Black covers that the OnePlus One ships with, and would allow you to choose from a range of exotic-looking cases including Bamboo, Denim and Kevlar. However, the quality standards that OnePlus apparently maintained turned out to be too much for the production facilities, which eventually lead to cancellation of the entire StyleSwap program.

But. There’s a few (hundred) Bamboo StyleSwap covers that the company have lying around, which they’re looking to sell to OnePlus owners. And guess what? You’ll be needed an invite to purchase these Bamboo StyleSwap covers. However, invites for these covers will be distributed randomly (unlike invites for the OnePlus One itself, which were given on the basis of things like forum activity, etc.).

So if you own a OnePlus One and would like to give it a Bamboo makeover, read complete details of the giveaway on the OnePlus forums, fill out this form, and then sit with crossing fingers.

In related news, talks about a homebrew ROM for the next OnePlus smartphone were overheard. Also, the OnePlus One finally went on pre-sale yesterday (albeit only for one hour), giving respite to those who missed on getting an invite. However, fans of the smartphone in India will be needing an invite (of a special kind) when it does go on sale in India.
