Invitation Only: OnePlus to sell a limited number of bamboo covers
If you were disappointed at the cancelation of the OnePlus One StyleSwap bamboo cover, I have some good news – you might still be able to get a hold of one. The few that made it through the production process unscathed will be put up for sale by OnePlus on Tuesday 4th of November. The catch – you will need an invitation before you can buy one.
In order to fairly distribute the few hundred units that OnePlus has available, the company has decided to dish them out randomly through a raffle. Lucky winners will then be invited to purchase their bamboo cover within 24 hours of the event’s end. The cover will cost $49.99.
Entries are limited to one per person. You can submit your application by entering your email address and country of residence through this simple form. The raffle doesn’t appear locked to existing OnePlus One customers, so you can grab one if you are planning to pick up an OnePlus One in the future and might even be able to buy one on eBay after the raffle has ended.
The original production of the StyleSwap cases was cancelled after manufacturing issues and a poorly designed method of removing the handset’s back cover. Swapping covers could apparently leave the back cover slightly creaky or loose. We’ll have to see if these covers come with the promised instructions on “how to replace your cover without damaging the cover, phone or battery.”
The raffle has already begun and closes on Tuesday 4th of November at 6AM EDT. Who wants one?
