Although OnePlus has yet to fully unveil the OnePlus One to the world, the company continues to drop additional details about the handset’s hardware and recently we even learned the phone will even offer voice control in a manner similar to the Moto X.

Of course, what many of us really want to know is what the OnePlus One will look like. While OnePlus still isn’t ready to show off the handset’s design, they are at least giving us some new details relating to the One’s back.

Thanks to what OnePlus is referring to as “StyleSwap” covers, the OnePlus One will offer multiple color choices and even different textures such as denim, bamboo, kevlar, silk and sandstone. Obviously the latter two are the names of color/textures and are probably made of different types of plastic, but the other three are said to be made from their respective materials.

So in other words, the OnePlus One will have removable covers in a manner similar to the Moto G, though it takes things a step further by offering multiple different premium textures.

What else do we know about the OnePlus One? The OnePlus offers a 5.5-inch 1080p display while reportedly not being any wider than the Xperia Z1. Under the hood you’ll find a Snapdragon 800 CPU, a 3100 mAh battery and a 13MP rear cam. All of these specs are said to be offered in a package that is less than $400, and OnePlus says that doesn’t mean $399 either.

What do you think, are you excited for the OnePlus One based on what we’ve seen so far, or are we destined to be let down due to all the hype that the company has been attempting to generate?
