OnePlus has started teasing something on social media, and we don’t know what it is. The obscure image shows what appears to be a phone that’s sporting leather, and sits behind a tagline that states “a bit of welcome luxury.”
So what is it? A new phone? We do know OnePlus has another handset planned for later this year, so that’s a slight possibility. But a more sensible guess is that this is a special premium leather back cover for the OnePlus 2. Yes, the same OnePlus 2 that OnePlus regrets you can’t yet buy.
And vocal OnePlus fans (or ex-fans, maybe) are letting it be known that teasing an accessory for a phone that’s almost impossible to buy is a bit ridiculous. Here are some choice quotes from the comments:
“having a phone would be luxury ;-)”
“Leather invite to the queue to get an invite to buy the phone”
“Leather NFC Adapter”
“It’s the “Oneplus Maybe we’ll get it right this time ” 2.5 phone! op2.5″
“The luxury of not screwing up ? “
Oh, and someone thinks it looks like shoe laces. Or a caterpillar. We’ll allow it, so long as those shoelaces come with a way to buy the phone whenever OnePlus reveals whatever it is they’re teasing.
