We were all looking forward to the OnePlus One and its cool features but it seems that One Plus has been struggling with the launch of the device. Plans keep changing and our hopes keep decreasing.
Well, if you were already sad about the phone, get ready to be depressed. OnePlus One will not feature its anticipated special covers known as the SwapStyle covers. The device was to come with several covers that were unusual but exciting. Some of the materials that were going to be used were denim, kevlar and bamboo.
So, why did OnePlus decide to cancel its SwapStyle line? It seems that there were production issues and it was too difficult to design a removal process of the back covers better. It was just too much overwhelming hassle that came with the special covers. Also, the swap could leave back covers of the gadget creaky or loose and risk damaging the battery cause of the constant exposure.
The only hope you have if you were waiting out for these cool back covers, is that OnePlus will be having limited stock of Bamboo covers that are flaw free. There will be detailed instructions given with the purchase of these covers so user replace covers without damaging anything.
OnePlus at the end of its announcement mentioned that even though the SwapStyle covers ended up in the drain, the company has learned from its mistakes and will take crucial steps to get the covers on to the OnePlus 2.
Well, you live and you learn.
