The OnePlus One is set to go official this Wednesday, but with all that’s already been revealed about the Android smartphone, it doesn’t feel like there are too, too many secrets left. Specs are pretty much an open book by this point, and we’ve heard about how and where sales of the phone will get underway, as well as what we should be expecting to pay. Still, a few questions have lingered, and some of the details that have largely remained under wraps have concerned the handset’s design. We’ve checked out the odd sketch, prototype render, and component shot, but a whole bunch of much more revealing images has surfaced in the past couple days, giving us a much better sense of the smartphone’s design.
Up top, those alternate backplates, previously revealed to us just as material swatches, show off everything they have to offer. At least, these sure look like legit renders; today’s pics may come to us from the OnePlus forums, but over on the Chinese side of the fence, and we haven’t been able to establish firm provenance.
That said, there’s nothing particularly controversial about what we’re seeing here, and the very Oppo-inspired design aligns nicely with previous leaks.
We also get some official shots of the phone’s UI, the custom CyanogenMod 11S the One will run. Be sure to check back Wednesday for even more, and for the final word on the smartphone’s launch.
