Remember when Xiaomi launched the Mi4 and showed off a multitude to interesting covers well they are coming true with some neat wooden offerings up first.
Motorola were the first (to my knowledge) to bring wood to smartphone design, OnePlus came next and now we are seeing other companies join the fashion parade with Xiaomi being the next big name to offer wooden panels.
The wooden panels shown here are for the Xiaomi Mi4 (yes the rear of the Mi4 does come off with the aid of a suction cup), but we hope they also make their way on to the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro in the future too.
It looks like Xiaomi will have a choice of 6 different interchangeable wood covers to choose from including white oak, bamboo, rosewood, walnut, pale, and dark woods. I have to admit I am quite taken by the idea of a wooden rear but will have to pass as I no longer own an Mi4.
For those of you who do have a Xiaomi Mi4 then they are on sale via the official Xiaomi store for 69 Yuan, and are sure to be picked up by resellers in the coming weeks.
