It’s been a busy year for Chinese manufacturer OnePlus, with the launch of the OnePlus 2 as well as a miniature drone that looked like an April Fool’s Day joke.
Small Chinese smartphone brand OnePlus shared a new teaser yesterday with the following slogan: “A bit of welcome luxury.” The company also wrote a caption that read, “Something luxurious is coming to OnePlus.” What could it be?
Last month, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei revealed that a third OnePlus handset would be out before the end of this year, possibly around Christmas time. But it doesn’t seem like a handset is being promoted with a teaser posted on the company’s Google+ site. In fact, while the image isn’t exactly clear, in the foreground of the photo we can see what appears to be a leather-type material.
This could be a teaser for leather SwapStyle rear cover for the OnePlus 2. Current SwapStyle covers for the phone feature Black Kevlar, Bamboo, Rosewood and Black Apricot, each priced at $26.99. We’ve yet to hear anything regarding the pricing of the purported SwapStyle leather covers, but we would not be surprised if the new covers cost a little more, given the “luxury” inclination.
Stay tuned as we expect to hear more about the new leather StyleSwap covers for the OnePlus 2 as well as the third OnePlus smartphone in the weeks or months ahead.
