The OnePlus One is a great handset from what we can tell based on reviews and its hardware specs. However if there’s one thing that marred this otherwise great phone is the fact that it is so hard to get your hands on one. This is due to the weird invitation-only system that OnePlus has in place to ensure that they are able to keep up with the demand for the phones.
That being said, it seems that OnePlus could be teasing some customization options for the handset. In a recent Twitter post by the company, they teased “Knock on wood” for the 22nd of July. It is unclear what this could mean, but some have speculated that it could mean that a wooden backplate option for the OnePlus One could be announced then.
Given that interchangeable backplates was one of the features of the OnePlus One, we guess adding a wooden option does not seem like a stretch of the imagination. In fact it almost sounds like OnePlus could be taking a leaf out of Motorola’s playbook, especially since the Moto X came with similar customization options as well.
In any case OnePlus is still a relatively new company and we guess that they’re still trying to adjust themselves to the demand and the spotlight that has been thrust upon them, so hopefully they will be able to work out the shipping issues soon. Until then do check back with us on the 22nd of July to see what the company might have in store for us.
