Despite being a relatively new company with only one phone to its name, OnePlus’ history has already been a very interesting one, filled with ups and downs. Questionable marketing strategies and a frustrating invite system has quickly taken away some of the OnePlus One’s limelight, but there’s still no denying that the One is an extremely impressive looking handset at a killer price — if you’re lucky enough to be able to buy one.

While we don’t know when this situation will change, that’s not stopping OnePlus from teasing us about something. The teaser (seen above) lists the date 7.22 (July 22nd) and says “Knock on wood” on a background made to look like wood. The obvious hint here is that wood backs, and hopefully the other promised StyleSwap covers, are on their way. But could there be more to it than that?

It would be amazing if OnePlus tied its full global launch to the same date as its SwapStyle cover debut, but considering the early troubles that the company has had with fulfilling invites in a timely manner, we’re not sure if they are ready just yet. It’s probably more likely that they will simply expand the amount of invites they are giving out to coincide with the launch of wood backs, which is something they’ve already started doing.

What do you think, still excited to get your hands on a OnePlus? Willing to go through the hoops to get it, or are you waiting for the full launch before you decide whether or not to pick one up?
