The other day we reported on sketches and OnePlus One marketing/packaging materials that hinted at what the front and back of the upcoming handset might look like. If you weren’t sure what to think based on those pictures, the good news is we now have a more detailed look at press renders of the device, alongside what appears to be the StyleSwap covers that will allow you to change up the look of the device.
As you can see, the overall shape and look of the OnePlus One in these photos falls in line with the design language shown off in the packaging/retail materials that leaked the other day. The OnePlus One appears to employ a minimalistic design approach that is very Oppo-like in nature, with the handset borrowing heavily from the design of the Oppo Find 5 in particular. Of course, considering the founding members of OnePlus came from Oppo, this makes sense.
Whether the OnePlus One’s design is something you’d consider the phone to be “more attractive than just about any [device] on the market, with the exception of maybe the iPhone” is probably a matter of taste. That said, we have to admit those stylish swap covers certainly have us more than a little excited. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, however, it’s important to note that we can’t say with any certainty that these images are legit. While they certainly fit with what we’d expect from the handset, it’s possible these could be merely fan renders, so we’d take all of this with a grain of salt for now.
